[] RE: EclipseCon memory stick and Ganymede M5

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) [2].
This would add up to
     690MB based on the 20080217 epp build [3]
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 tomorrow
    Though I think some space should be left for "Update the Stick at the
    Conference" stations - I hope that such stations will be available
  • (2) Size of Stick Sponsor files - Bjorn how much will that be?
  • (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 of 
obsolete files from previous releases, e.g. there is 7 different versions of
                 the buckminster.core plugin).
   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 only)
So that's probably less than most people might have thought...
Find attached a "Mirror Ganymede" script that can be used to re-compute sizes if necessary.

  1. 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 site.
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?
