Patrice wasn't talking about trimming the CD by selecting a smaller 
package set, he was talking about trimming the CD by setting up the live 
CD filesystem and then removing documentation and other "excess stuff". 
  If such a CD were prepared and users installed the content of the live 
CD to their hard drive, those things would remain missing.  Yum wouldn't 
fix it.
