Ubuntu Server seeded package review

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hi Folks

As part of tidying for the next LTS release, the Server Team are
proposing a review of server released seeded packages that are
currently in Ubuntu main (proposed changes tracked in [0] for now).

Here's the initial review of seeds, and some proposed moves and drops
we are considering:

Branch:
https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/ubuntu.trusty

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/ubuntu.trusty/view/head:/server

Description: Default server install

whoopsie (ack'ed by ev)
wireless-tools
wpasupplicant

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/ubuntu.trusty/view/head:/server-ship

Description: Server ISO image

nut, nut-cgi, nut-snmp (move to supported-misc-servers)
likewise-open (largely unmaintained in distro -
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LikewiseOpen)
powernap, powernap-server (still revelvant?)
quagga (maybe move to supported-misc-servers)
backuppc
python-beautifulsoup
python-genshi (will be pulled into main via supported-misc-servers ...
python-pecan)
whoopsie (ack'ed by ev)
mutt

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/ubuntu.trusty/view/head:/cloud-image

Description: Default cloud-image install

whoopsie (ack'ed by ev)
tasksel (drops aptitude etc.)
euca2ools (move to supported-misc-servers)

Branch:
https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/platform.trusty

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/platform.trusty/view/head:/supported-misc-servers

Description: Other supported stuff which is not on the ISO

No candidates identified

And a few other packages that we'd like to not be part of the cloud
images (which include the 'cloud-image' and 'server' seeds). These
are not explicitly listed in either of these seeds but are pulled in
due to dependencies or Recommends.

ppp
usbutils
os-prober
aptitude
memtest86

... and discuss!

I'd like to land any changes early in 2014 prior to feature freeze.

Cheers

James
