Default desktop comps

Hi All,

Just going through and reviewing a F-16 install and I've some queries
about various deps listed in the comps file for gnome-desktop to see
if I can trim the size a little.

gok: does this need to be default now with the new keyboard in gnome
3.2? Can it be made optional as its the only thing that pulls in
ORBit2 and a couple of other deps and saves about 12mb

Also why are there various libraries specified in the comps file, its
only really suppose to specify apps and the libs then get pulled in as
deps when needed. There's a few more meg to be save by dropping
libsane-hpaio and its not used in the default install.

Not huge but helps.

Peter

Yes, gok should become optional now. Thanks for pointing that out.

All the 'lib...' packages that are there are listed because they install modules of some sort that are not otherwise pulled in via dependencies.

I'm not sure we actually need to worry about dropping any space. I want to find some time this week to look at the live cd, but from what I hear, we already have lots of free space there.

FWIW, we could even remove it from the default package list, it's not
integrated, only the old-style Caribou currently is.

We should use caribou instead for fallback mode.

There's a bit of discussion as (within the specific context of the
fallback login screen) here:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=658429

Of course our live image is really under budget size wise right now...
