Re: [opensuse-factory] 12.3 -- if it isn't too late....

Hell, what degree of difficulty is there to add a 358Kb and a 4Kb file
for make and gcc, respectively, to the default install list?

It seems wrong to 'penalize' non-nv users with extra packages.

Oh, yeah :-( . Great penalty :-( .

Why not make the default install install everything anyone might ever need? It's the principle of penalizing everyone over needs of a user subset that finds FOSS inadequate. Those who must depend on FOSS packages to meet their non-FOSS needs should be dependent on the non-FOSS packages to ensure meeting its dependencies.
