So far we have managed to reduce the download area by 20% (16.8 GiB), 
which is great progress.  Thank you all for helping make this happen.

The attached list contains packages which on the surface appear to be

packages on this list, and if your package qualifies, proceed as above. 
If not, please state why for future reference.
