Re: DVD only for Fedora "Classic" spin?

It appears to me more logical to have started with exactly investigating these metrics before doubling the whole distribution by adding "Extras" to "Core". The qualifier "quite large" sounds fairly fuzzy. Maybe some other "Fedora" users would like to step in and let us know how much of "Extras" they actually use [preferably in terms of MB]?

Idealistic. If we had lots of contributors and time, we could have the right amount of data before we do anything but the result of Free software in general is that users can take and use things without letting anyone including the developers know about it. We know we need to collect more information and those have to be opt-in (which means it is guaranteed to be incomplete but better than having no data at all). Are you willing to help with infrastructure to get this metrics? How do you propose we do that for F7 or in the absence of that how do you want F7 media sets to be? You are questioning the whole merger of core and extras just by your usage of a few extras packages while the benefits are much more than just being able to put more packages into the media. In fact putting all the packages into media doesnt require a merge at all.
