Steven brings up a larger issue.  With Fedora going to the "distributed"
model, at what point do we start to try (if at all?) to "reduce" the
size Fedore "Core" (FC)?

I mean, is there a reason we need to maintain a 3+ CD set for FC, just
as to match the "legacy" design of old Red Hat Linux (RHL)?

I personally would like to see "Core" reduced to a _single_ binary CD.

Maybe call it Fedora "miniCore" (FmC)?**
Or maybe Fedora Quark (FQ)?   I kinda like that better.

But that is a larger issue for the steering committee.

BTW, I hope I'm not the first one to suggest this?

**NOTE:  This is just a suggestion.  I'm not one to name things.

In fact, I was first going to suggest Fedora "microCore" instead of
Fedora "miniCore" but the common use of "u" as the character for "Mu"
for "micro" produces a rather "intersting" acronym -- i.e., "FuC".
