Re: further package removals/potential package removals

The best thing to do about that is to make a pol: send periodic reports to be filled by members of Fedora comunities and trying to measure what is being used, by who and under what circunstancies. Besides that, a policy: what (generic) groups of softwares will be distributed inside Fedora Core (for instance, that may be a policy of Fedora not distributing games/entreteirment). The policy may also include cases for obsolecence and unsuported packages and for things that are under development by the community.

There seems to be a general consensus that Core should have no more than
one or two pieces of software for any given task.

I'm not so sure there is a general concensous about that.... I see
people lobbying for several different usage cases but I don't see a
clear defined set of usage cases that Core is suppose to fulfill by
itself.   'General Purpose' is too vague.  I think Core needs to back
up and define one or two specific usage cases and target those.. and
move out applications and technologies that do not fit into the
primary usage situations.   Core right now is a compromise that suits
pretty much everyone equally badly.  And while thats an admirable
feat, its doesn't give a clear guiding perspective for the future .
