Hi Steve and everybody,

I wonder what would be the overlap between everything non-graphical that one
wants to put on a medium of intermediate size (in your proposal: a CD), and
everything one wants to have on a cloud image that is not strictly minimal (the
Ubuntu images come to my mind).

If that would be large, then would it be interesting to maintain that list of
packages (as a task ?) in a coordinated way.

Have a nice week-end,
