Re: Requesting advice regarding creating a custom Debian distribution

Quoting Don Armstrong <don@debian.org>:

You appear to be conflating a few different things here.

Yes, the initial statement was intended to be separate from the paragraph after.

As far as the set that's appropriate for medium-memory users, that's
really a user specific thing; what can be improved are the selection
of packages for this case, which is an area where working with task
selection and the installer will have the most significant impact.

Good point, instead of trying to specify certain applications I should be looking at providing a good selection.

At the end of the day though, your time is your own. Spend it as you

 Yes, please :)

1: Exposing fewer packages to such machines by only showing "relevant"
packages and/or improvements to libapt may be useful here, but it's
not an area that I'm terribly experienced in.

a ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien a retrancher.

but when nothing else can be removed.)
