Just to give some quick information on some stuff I've been working on
in the past few days. As some people noticed, we lost a few apps on the
livecd for m5 because of package conflicts and because of size issues.


+ smolt has been split in smolt and smolt-gui. The smolt-gui part is
the only part that requires python-qt4 (quite big). So we'll remove
it from the live cd. But to do that, we first need to update the
patch in gnome-packagekit that runs smolt on the first login to not
use the gui, but a small helper. This is not hard to do and I can
guide people there.
=> help needed

Help has been granted and I'm working on this one :-)

+ Sandy has been working to try to get rid of mono-winforms on the
livecd. It's required by mono-web, which is required by various apps.

+ there's some work to split the debugging information from mono
packages in the proper debuginfo packages. This should help quite a
bit too.

+ we're trying to get rid of some not-that-interesting icon themes in

+ I'm splitting the support for tcl plugins in libpurple (pidgin) and
xchat into subpackages. There are only three packages on the m5
livecd requiring tcl and tk: libpurple, xchat and python-openl. So
this automatically should go away soon.

I have not tried it, but if we replace pidgin with empathy, how is
empathy as an IRC client? Perhaps we could get rid of xchat all together
if we go ahead.
