Discussion was more about 1GB instead of 700 or 800MB...

No, rather between 700 and 1000 MB, as needed.

Allthough i'm in favour of live-images of 1GB there is one risk: With
repair or netboot images the incentive to keep the image small is
obvious. Just like cd 700MB limitation of a cdrom.

Which is why there is also the proposal to also make a small rescue CD
with xfce or another small desktop; the big desktops would have the
needed space, and the people that need a CD would have a CD. And the
people that asked for a rescue system would have it. And the marketing
people could boast about having also xfce (or whatever) as a desktop. :-)

When that limitation is removed, there might be a tendency that for
12.2 the live image is 800MB, the next 1GB, next one 1.5GB. If not
careful we end up with a live-blu-ray, live-data-centre or a
live-cloud ;-))

Hope not :-)
Or not too soon.
