APT Minimalism and lean desktops
Hi, I like ideas of having only the necessary and minimal set of packages summarized there https://git.devuan.org/dev1fanboy/Upgrade-Install-Devuan/wikis/devuan-talk-version#configure-minimalism https://git.devuan.org/dev1fanboy/Upgrade-Install-Devuan/wikis/Minimal-XFCE4-install
Are there any plans to integrate this ideas into the official installer?
At the moment, if you make the installation from CD and select a desktop enviroment (I'v did it today for MATE), the whole hell of the recoomended packages (Libreoffice, Firefox, and so on...) will be installed. That leads to an extra traffic and time during installation, and it eats even more time afterwards to cleanup the system.
Would be greate to have and option to select in the tasks the lean versions of the desktops: meaning really only the XFCE/MATE related packages without any extra stuff.
PS: there was an interesting discussion about DNS-servers on the mailing list, that falls in my opinion conceptually into the same direction: give the user/admin the freedom and control on what and when to select and install something...
