Re: Large data packages in the archive

   complete data package, the smaller dataset should be included in
   main and the package then may depend on "foo-data | foo-data-small".

Hmm. Would anything happen to the current fgfs-base package (200 MB compressed)? This *is* intended to be the minimum data necessary to start FlightGear. The "full" data set, for comparison, supposedly fits on 3 DVDs. (Obviously, so far I have not felt the urge to package that, the users can get that themselves if they want it...)
