So, what's the current status regarding priority 3 (the
packages) on the stick. For me it seems like with the new Modeling
package, there will be no point in providing more
than 1 Platform (Windows) of the 5 packages only (C, Java, JEE,
RCP, Modeling) .
This would add up to
based on the 20080217 epp build 
the biggest contributors being Modeling
(227MB) and RCP (164MB).
What to do with the rest of the size? I'd love seing that
decision be made
by the Community of all Projects and not just the EMO, if
possible. So can
we collect the data:
(1) Size of Presentations - due today - should be known
Though I think some space should be left for "Update the
Stick at the
Conference" stations - I hope that such stations will be
(2) Size of Stick Sponsor files - Bjorn how much will that
(3) Size of Packages - 690MB, see above
Size of Ganymede:
820MB Ganymede/staging today (JARs
only, no pack.gz, but there seem to be lots
obsolete files from previous releases, e.g. there is 7 different versions
505MB After "mirror update site"
(JARs only, no obsolete files)
647MB .jar and .pack.gz (note:
Ganymede M4 was 665MB, so is something missing??)
142 MB Ganymede M5 (.pack.gz
So that's probably less than most people might have
Find attached a "Mirror Ganymede" script that can be used
to re-compute sizes if necessary.
- We can include approximately eight packages on the USB memory stick.
Currently there four
packages (C, Java, JEE, RCP), thus we could include two operating
systems for each of those four. Win32 is our number one download, so I think
it's obvious that we would include at least the Win32 packages.

What's the final
word on what is included on the memory stick? Will the Ganymede Update Site
be included? I still don't know - it depends on how much space
other things take up. My current guess is "no". First priority for space is
the presentations. Second are the files from the memory stick sponsor. Third
are the packages (if they get built in time). Fourth is the whole update
If not, how can I
make sure that our project is included in one of the EPP packages?
That question is independent of whether the Ganymede Update Site
gets onto the EclipseCon memory stick, ja?
