I think ks file is in its final form pending new problems.
My experiment in removing evolution and ligweather failed. They have too
much desktop stuff dependent on them to pull out.
I made a couple of corrections for packages that had been obsoleted.
poker2d-kde was obsoleted by poker2d which was already in the spin.
ksirk was obsoleted by kdegames which was not included, but was getting
pulled in. I did not really want all of kdegames, so ksirk has been dropped.
I also dropped bsd-games which pulled in a bunch of text based games, which
really isn't the focus of the spin. Rogue and nethack (probably the best
text based games) are still in and can be started from the games menu.
I have a reasonable Games Spin page now and have moved it to Spin Ready
For Wrangler, to get it looked at before going before the Spins SIG.
Current breathing room is 90 MB for i686 and 80 MB for x86_64.
The spin will definitately be limited to 4 GiB.
I am testing removing Wine in order to keep the x86_64 spin about the same
size. (Wine pulls in a bunch of 386 libs.)
I was also planning on removing wget since being based on the desktop
kickstart I'll just take whatever it pulls in.
I was going to drop dosbox as we are trying to show off Fedora's games,
not being able to run emulators for mostly propietary stuff.
I need to keep an eye on space still as the spin is very close to the size
limit and changes in packages could end up putting the spin over.
I haven't finished get the newer spin page done yet. The general stuff is
there, but I need to include a game list which will be a bit of typing.
I want to get this done this week so that the spin wrangler will have plenty
of time to review before the next Spin SIG meeting.
I still could use a maintainer to take a look at nethack and see if it's
font setup just needs the Requires(post) and add it if it does.
I haven't gotten any feedback from the Alpha Spin. I have noticed some people
grabbing a copy as I have been trying to help seed. So I think a few people
are using it.
