what changes for universe only?
CD -> 1GB USB image?
remove DVD?
remove alternate?
kubuntu active on arm?
which arm images?
Debate adding pommed to Mac ISO's (shadeslayer)
ec2 images for neon?

powerpc is very low priority

* Separate mac images exist because some Mac's don't boot the standard ISO
* Pommed and macfantld not required since the 3.5 kernel supports backlight and fan control out of the box ( on EFI boots only )
* Project Neon KVM images released : http://dot.kde.org/2012/07/24/introducing-project-neon-kvm
