This comes up a lot.  And everytime it comes up I suggest that the
first step that interested community members can do is edit the
comps.xml file that defines the groups the installer uses. The very
first thing users interested in a smaller 'minimal' install can do is
reorganize the comps.xml so the minimal install installs less without
disturbing the desktop/workstation/server install types. A reworked
comps.xml is easy to hand out for the rest of the community to test by
rebuild isos and doing test installs.  Once the groups are
reorganized, you'll have to talk with specific developers about
dividing packages into subpackages to reduce the minimal install
further.
