The whole of debian-science will be quite large (Quite how large I'm
not sure, but installing the packages I don't have on my system would
take 2.7 Gig.) I propose therefore to add science-astronomy,
science-biology, science-physics etc containing their respective
I could then add a science-all package depending on them all. If it
won't fit on one DVD, then it is perhaps worth splitting it - perhaps
into a physical/biological set.
Does this make sense?
PS Some of the science tasks contain packages in contrib and non-free
(as suggests) which would probably need to be excluded if an official
iso was produced.
