Server Seeded Package review

Registered by Patricia Gaughen on 2013-11-01

[RATIONALE]
The Ubuntu server seeds have grown alot over the last few years and not much has been reviewed/removed.

LTS is a good point to review and remove the surplus that is no longer supportable/important.

[GOAL]
Trimmed down server seed for Ubuntu 14.04.
