We could sure use some scripts to anaylse RPM deps on a nightly basis
and produces reports on interesting stats. eg disk footprint of the
chain starting from package 'X', or list of dependancies from package
'X', or perhaps something that given a kickstart file can report
the total size of the package set listed in the kickstart without
actually going through the full livecd (or equiv) build process. We
are fighting a similar battle to OLPC with the oVirt project which
has a live CD we're trying to keep under 64 MB in size.
