Do you mean to say, that you would like to install just the packages
which are needed for running IDL? If yes, its something which could be
definitely looked into. Also, how do you find, GNU Data languaga [1]?

in the KS file.

Thanks for your  suggestions. Funny, I think I missed 'spyder'. All
others are included from the @engineering-and-scientific group.

Hmm..I agree. That was my thinking..Once we get the offficial
notification, I will try and see if keeping GNOME3 based spin is
possible or not.
