Package Selection for Debian Live

[ crosspost to live, -devel and -edu; replies please to -devel ]

Hi all,

at the moment, we have two types of Live CD images:

  * the small one which contains only packages of standard priority,
  * and three larger ones, each of which contains one of the common
    desktop-environments on it (gnome, kde, xfce).

Now, we would like to create a decent package selection which reflects,
as well as possible, the users' desires. There should be one package
selection for a 700MB CD-ROM, and one for a 4.5GB DVD-ROM. With the
current squashfs compression, the actual filesystem size is about 3
times bigger than the packed one. This means that there can be quite a
few packages on it :) I'm open for your suggestions...
