I respectfully would appreciate some additional high-level categorization of packages. Examples of categories:

- fonts
- theses & dissertations
- bibliography styles
- languages, Western
- languages, non-Western

Once thusly categorized, I would find it useful to be able to omit downloading & installing entire categories. For example, I will never (again) write a thesis, so would prefer to save the space and effort of obtaining & maintaining any and all such packages.

Independent of the feasibility of the above, I want to thank everyone for the commitment and hard work that has gone and continues to go into providing such an incredibly useful software collection.

Best,

No problem, just install
scheme-small
and then add what is needed with tlmgr.
