Description Rodolfo J. Paiz 2004-10-18 14:57:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
I suggest you remove mt-st from the minimal install. So few computers
have tape drives that this package becomes mostly useless and is
better installed on-demand rather than by default.

Only about 100KB saved, but every little is a gain.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. None needed.

I'm going to do a lot of work on reducing the overall size of the
minimal install; how would you like me to file these requests? One at
a time for ease of tracking and atomic decision-making? Or a bunch at
a time so you don't get flooded with RFE's?
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2004-10-21 23:02:30 EDT
I think what might work best would be to wait until FC3 is released
(so we're back into full-on-development mode again), and then corner
one of the comps owners on IRC. There are a lot of hidden implications
for removing packages (e.g. what if mt-st is needed to do tape
installs?) so it needs to be a cooperative effort.
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2004-12-03 14:02:59 EST
It's not needed, removing from comps-fc4.xml.in
