vim-base indeed isn't enough as it doesn't contain the vim binary o_O. The
"vim" would be needed.

No way should vim be in a "minimal" install.

This isn't a "minimal" install, this is a "minimal server selection
(text-only)". I.e. it's not about being tiny, but about being a fast install,
suitable for servers.

If you have to have an editor (there's already sed in SUSE Studio JeOS), then
why not consider e3, which crams Wordstar-like or Emacs or Pico or vi or Nedit
editor modes into :

vim was part of the minimal server install before, is there a reason to change
that?

Things like NTP also seem redundant if say the minimal install is in a virtual
machine.

But quite useful on physical servers.

The argument for a Minimal Install came about because 10.3, 11.0 & 11.1, had
very bloated default installs,

I could be wrong, but I think the Minimal Server Selection has been around
longer than that.
