Section Number and Name: 
6.13. Software Selection
11.14. Software Selection
15.14. Software Selection
24.3.3. Package Selection

Describe the issue: 
Software selection and Package selection section should contain the guidance that minimum required packages should be installed in many reasons.

Currently, the installation guide doesn't contain how to chose the software selection.
The guidance for the choice of the software selection and package selection depends on the system's requirement. But we should write the general guidance as minimal installation is a best practice from security perspective.
The minimal installation also has a benefit that it can reduce the maintenance cost of update in security vulnerabilities and bug fixes. 

Suggestions for improvement: 
In the installation guide, we should contain the general guidance for choosing software selection and package selection.
Especially, we should add the link to the security guide.
