1. How big can the total get? How big is it now? Is it half full? 2/3? 3/4?

2. Is there any information about what *Gentoo* users, to be
distinguished from the overall Linux user base, do with their systems
that would guide the packages into "themes", such as science,
multimedia, network security, office, programming languages, web
applications/servers, etc.?

3. Could there be more than one, with "themed" DVDs like multimedia or
science only available for a nominal price from the store? Something
like RHEL -- the source is freely available on line as required by the
GPL and someone like CentOS could come along and remaster, but people
who wanted the convenience of downloading an ISO would pay, say, $10 or
$20 to support Gentoo.


In the absence of themes, I'd just say "more programming languages,
Rails and more Ruby stuff, more multimedia, more science, more network
tools, ..." That's what I use -- everything I have on my systems would
easily fit on a LiveDVD, but I could go ahead and build my own with
Catalyst.
