Come on. Somebody who set up koji, mock and other stuff for building his
own derivate of Fedora should be afraid about 3 lines in the
fedora-logos.spec file which declares a sub package should be made for
the grub grafic? 

This doesn't sound like why we "can't" do that. As i said allready all
what i am asking for is: 

generate a grub-logo-rpm which does not need half of the base rpms.

Is that really so hard to do?


Read this mail again and decide for yourself why this is a good plan. 

Please. I ever thought this is the place for improvements of Fedora.
There is one. Take the chance to do it. Maybe we come to a minimal
install without 250Mb not needed stuff on the harddisk.

Greetings Stefan.

(I will stop this now and file a RFE in Bugzilla)
