Minimization Objective report

This is the Minimization Objective [0] update.

== Regular meeting ==

Team meeting every Wednesday 15:00 GMT (find it in the SIGs calendar [1]).

== Discoveries ==

A new discoveries page [2] created that will contain random useful
discoveries. It'll get structured as it fills up.

Potential areas to focus on:
- removing Systemd dependency from dnf, httpd, and others in order to build
smaller container images
- removing Perl from the base installation

== Toolbox ==

The 'showme' tool [3] for visualising and inspecting RPM dependencies now
supports weak dependencies and a package list output.

== How to get involved ==

See if there is anything interesting to you on action plan [4], or reach
out with something you think is useful but is missing there. Open a ticket
in the tracker [5] or discuss in #fedora-devel on IRC.

Cheers,
Adam

Hi, Adam.

I didn't have a chance to tell you this at Flock, but could you rename
the binary to something like rpm-showme? Plain showme is very generic
and unsuitable for such a specific tool.

I agree. It also means people are less likely to "discover" the tool and
must be told about it or otherwise find it through indirect searches.

Yeah, that's a good point. I might rename the repo as well. Thanks for the
suggestion!
