Isn't that moot with plymouth now?
Possible. Remember my mail about "plymouth support for kiwi"? Not much
happened about it.

There are some packages you can't pick and there are packages that will
free more space than there value due to their dependency list.

I don't understand the purpose of mysql on an live CD but that's
probably just me :-)
Ask the kdepim crew... ;(

But as you can see, libreoffice and it's subpackages (plus their
dependencies) is worth ~20% of the live cd space. So realistically,
we have two choices: live CD without libreoffice or live USB with
libreoffice. *Or* we find a way to reduce the size of packages
by splitting things out that are optional and don't need to be on
the live cd (I can hear you say documentation :)

seife@susi:~> rpm --help|grep docs
--excludedocs do not install documentation

how about that?

That breaks online updates - and you have no way to retrieve the
documentation later.
