Hi,

The beta has no libreoffice and no gimp on the live cd - mainly
because their dependencies got blocked (ghostscript and jdk).

Now I tried how much space we need to save to be at 700MB and it's
roughly 80MB, that we are over.

So I wonder: should we screw the medium CD and go officially for
1GB sticks as our medium? (or require DVD medium for non-usb).

The alternative is saving these 80MB by picking something to block.
For your convenience, this is the list of the largest packages
on KDE.i586 - sizes will differ for the other variants of course.

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.

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 :)

Just a small concern on using usb stick. I created a stick with 12.2 MS3
as per instructions. It does not booth. Two days ago I went to delete
everything on it but cannot even as root. Says its read only. Was this
something I did or is that how the usb stick works for live CD version?
If thats how it works I would prefer the DVD, there cheaper.

Just my 2 cents.
