I know it is hard as a dev to say does the community want this... Do they want that.... Or do they want neither.

This is why I ask this question. I'm not asking for what packages everyone would like (will be brought up later)
But would you want to have a base rom with very little packages (xfree,wm, utils, term app, text editor)

Or beef it up with the above and im client, web browser, mail app, word processor, etc.

I would like to know if the we (community) are a do-it-ourselves kind of group or would rather have it there and ready out of the box even if there may be unused apps

I would tend to prefer a lite install (but that depends on whether the heavy install mostly contains apps I would actually use or just bloat). The lite version should have some decent tools for viewing and editing text file (config files) - I'm not sure whether this is still the case, but at one stage even the all important 'less' was not included. A decent editor would be vim but that may be too bloated, (vi is crap because it corrupts the display), maybe nano would do.

With the full backup/restore scripts by Meanie(?) it should be easy for people to do a lite install, then install apps of their choice then do a backup to create their own custom rom.

Actually I'm going to be heading up the backup/restore tool... but if meanie wants it... he can have it :-)
