So the initial burst made a smallish dent, but there's still a lot more to do, which I'd like to get to this weekend. If anyone want to help out, that'd be great. In addition, please voice your opinions about a few things (I haven't heard a lot of developers talk about this, so I've left it alone:
- Move desktop related stuff to extra? (possibly keep only xorg in current?)
- Move wireless/network modules to current? (they're that important IMO)
- Rename current to "core" ?
- Anything else?
I just wanted to say well done on this, Aaron, for taking the initiative and doing it. Here are the current repo sizes and changes from my original counts: Current: 557 (-6 packages) Extra: 1905 (-114 packages) Community: 1486 (+289 packages)
As you can see, some of the burden has shifted which is a good thing in my eyes.
Do we need to go anywhere with the above stuff, such as moving some desktop apps out of current, etc.? It may allow them to be built with a more complete feature set than they are when put in current.
