Description of problem:

Hello team this is a tracker for long term solution for our re-occuring issues where RHEL content (mainly workstation) can't fit the hard limit of single layered DVD.

I do see following scenarios

(1) Do not support single layered DVD image as a deliverable

(2) Anaconda will support multi DVD installs, rel-eng will support multi-dvd DVD creation

(3) We'll create Single layered DVD image out of subset of content. (e.g. no multilib on isos). This will require tooling change on pungi side.

(4) We might continue breaking customer updates by dropping selected packages from ISOs

Assigning this bug to Dennis, as this is a significant change on platform.
Setting needinfo on Steve Almy.

Hello team,

I'm really thinking of proposing to drop multilib from DVD I can imagine that this could easily drop something like 20% of size
lkocman@rcm-dev:latest-RHEL-7> du -ch /mnt/redhat/nightly/latest-RHEL-7/compose/Server/x86_64/os/Packages/*.i686.rpm  | grep total
744M	total

Implementation would have to be done on pungi-level.

What do you think Steve?
