Subject Re: [DISCUSS] enhance the assemble server portlet usability
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2008 03:20:45 GMT
I think footprint could be a concern for users in developing
countries.   A user may only want to download what he needs.

I also agree such capability doesn't overlap what I am proposing, as a
user could still want to build custom assembly server out of his
current server.
