OK, the latest cut is much better:


Note' this is the diff against the "With X, but missing TeX" pre6, so
the fact that there is no mention of things like xdm means they're still
on CD#1

Things to note:

  erlang is still in, on the strength of its (spurious) listing as a
  non-US package, so once non-US is cleaned up, we'll have a load more
  space on CD#1.

  The three Non-US packages at the end of this, that have gone to CD#7,
  are also now in the main US archive, so are not in fact contaminating
  CD7 with non-US stuff.

  Having exchanged the kernel images for the kernel source, we should
  probably make sure that all the patches required to make the images
  we've removed also be included on CD#1 --- any suggestions on how to
  maintain a definitive list?

The jigdos that go with this are starting to appear here:
