Just a few comments for a future release:
Hi Markus, thanks for reviewing this!

- virtualbox-ose-kmp-default AFAIK doesn't make sense without VirtualBox
installed (the usable stuff for being a VBox client OS is AFAIK in the Xorg

Fixed, thanks.

- "kde4-webkitpart" is the old one. It has been renamed to kwebkitpart
(that it even made it onto the live CD could be related to bug )

Fixed - this was just a screwup, the kde4-webkitpart version was explicitly

- A audio CD player (KsCD) really makes no sense on a live CD, because the
drive is occupied by the live CD and only very few people have more than
one drive.

Consider Live USB. Although CDs are arguably a legacy format, and KsCD's KDE
4 UI was horrible the last time I looked.

- VIM doesn't really make sense to be shipped by default in any distro.
Nano is available as fall-back console editor and whoever wants VIM can
install it.

- Space freed by leaving VIM out could be used by KDE apps that are
currently in Playground or Review (eg. Rekonq or Kahjong)

vim is 2.1 MB installed - almost all KDE games are larger, for example, so I
consider dropping vim to be an over-optimisation. I would like to get rekonq
on the image, but I'm an bit leery of including KDE:KDE4:Community packages
yet as it changes the 'trust' of the image.
