Description Richi Plana 2007-11-24 22:56:55 UTC
Description of problem:
In the DVD distribution, joe editor is missing. It is a small text editor (400KB
binary, 1MB package) that used to be in the Fedora Core DVD sets. It's a
personal preference for several users and is useful in the DVD/CD distribution
(not just the LiveCD one) for its use in editing text files (a primary
administrative function in OS installation).

Sigh ... I meant Fedora 9 and onwards spin. It's too late for 8 unless it's for
a respin.

The problem is that 1 meg is a lot when we're talking about the live image.  I'm
constantly fighting to find one meg (or more often, 5) to keep the live images
fitting.  For a small and simple to use text editor, nano is included.  And vi
is also present for unix diehards :)  

And fwiw, my editor of choice (emacs) isn't there either :-)

Comment 3 Richi Plana 2007-11-26 16:22:15 UTC

I was actually hoping it would go on the distribution spin of Fedora and not the
LiveCD version. nodata on the fedora-devel list suggested I file the bug against
LiveCD in the hope that it would get redirected against the right component. If
LiveCD/DVD isn't the right component, could you suggest an alternative.

I'm sure the DVD Fedora version (as opposed to Everything and Live) would have
enough space.

Joe has been added to the Fedora manifest.
