We are only about half-way towards filling the first DVD.  When free space on 
the first DVD runs low then we can look into limiting things.


Maybe we should consider having a CD for things that don't change much such as 
TeX and Tuxracer?  Would it be possible to have ~500M of packages not change 
in any significant or required manner for several Fedora releases?

A Fedora distribution consisting of three CDs which need to be downloaded and 
a fourth CD which can be used from the previous release might make some 
people more happy than having to burn four new CDs each time.

Maybe organising packages based on how often updates are needed instead of how 
many people will install them is the better option.  For example all packages 
containing SUID root binaries would have to be on the first disc or two - 
even the ones that are not commonly installed.
