[TEAM] ISO target size

in the last community meeting we had some discussion about the target
size for our ISO. Since many of the team weren't attending, we wanted to
bring the discussion in the mailing list.

PLEASE NOTE that this is not a idea/proposal thread for ideas on filling
the ISO with $software. People who send software suggestions to this
thread have the risk of being added to the manual moderation list. Thank

After we couldn't fit into a CD any more, our target has been 1GB. The
argument for that target size was that it was the next usual hardware
limit (eg. there aren't many 900MB USB sticks).

This discussion is current since we are talking about potentially
including LibreOffice; if that happens, we will definitely go over 1GB
and there isn't anything we can drop to get back below.

My suggestion on the meeting was that if we go over 1GB, our new target
should be "below or as close to 1GB as possible, but 2GB at maximum".

What do you others think?
