Hi all,

I was looking at the current size status of the Edubuntu .isos since
it we aren't having a Tribe 6 today. Here's a summary:

server:  715MB (i386)   687MB (amd64)
server addon:  637MB (i386)   643MB (amd64)
desktop:  705MB (i386)   680MB (amd64)
DVD:  5.1GB (i386)   5.1GB (amd64)

and for the unofficial ports:

PPC:  734MB (server)   464MB (addon)   711MB (desktop)
SPARC: 617MB (server)   465MB (addon)  701MB (desktop)

So we are oversized on 4 out of 8 on official .isos and 3 out of 6 on
unoffical .isos.

Oliver, any plan? Obviously somethings bloated up i386 as Ubuntu's CDs
seem a bit bigger as well. The Server CD still has some lang packs but
the Desktop CD has already lost all the lang packs *and* tuxpaint.
Also, has there been any discussion about how to get the DVD smaller?
It needs to be 4.2GB to make it on a single DVD right? So that means
0.9GB needs to come off. I'd like to have working DVDs if possible for
the 7.10 release if possible.
