Hi folks

Working on a few minor issues related to the kernel packages, in particular, 
the need to have to mess around with the kernel-source tree before compiling 
any modules - An upgrade on the main build system has resulted in a shiny new 
set of key packages. The rtai-dev and kernel-headers packages are the only 
prerequisites for compiling kernel modules now.
The change in the way kernel packages are produced has introduced a name 
change (kernel-image- is now linux-image- along 
with an increase in size for linux-headers- (up by 1.4M). This 
is offset by dropping kernel-kbuild (355K).

Mumblings from other quarters would suggest the addition of subversion to be 
useful, however, this adds another 1.4M to the final ISO. Along with the 
increase in size of the kernel packages, I'm at 630M for the ISO..

Question: Is subversion worth the additional space, should something be 
dropped in it's favour, or should I forget about reserving space for emc2 ?

Regards, Paul.
