[Mageia-discuss] I'd like to start to discuss the possibility of having one language per iso when it comes to full DVD-versions, similar to the Live-versions.

A long time have I wondered why a Swedish man/woman would want to have 
more languages on his/her iso to install just Swedish as language.

I'm therefor opening a discussion to perhaps solve this little proposal 
that I've got.

Look at the Live-iso's that we have to offer, they come with 16 
languages each.

Lets think for a second that a user doesn't want to install a 
Live-system & to use a large iso with unnessecary languages is out of 

How does he/she solve it to install Mageia?

My idea is that we transform the full-DVD iso to one-language only, but 
more iso's in the end.

Like this:

mageia-dvd-1-i586.iso in a language-dir under 

The result is that you shrink the DVD much & you can add other stuff 
that doesn't fit in the ordinary DVD's for some reason.......perhaps add 
more drivers.

I got my idea from looking in the Mozilla-way of showing people how to 
find their language-version of Firefox, Thunderbird etc.....

Don't get me wrong about this....... I really really really REEEEEEAALLY 
love Mageia & I intend to continue using it for all future, but I just 
wanted to make a proposition that makes the choice of iso much easier.

Please think about it & discuss the pro's & con's.
