Hi Sam,

> koma related docs...

Yes, I explained that in the previous email, this is on purpose.

> It might be nice to have a `tlmgr` or `texlive.profile` “clean-all" option to create an absolute-minimum install (event if it is locked from further updates, that is fine for many embedded or server deployment scenarios).

What is "absolute minimum"? That is impossible to define. Only the
engines and one needs to build formats by hand? Which languages? Which
fonts? Which packages? There is no way to fix this once and for all,
thus we refrain from doing so.

> Question: is it possible to put a list of specific packages to install in the `texlive.profile` file? i.e. specify a custom collection in-line?

No, that is not possible at the moment, sorry.

All the best
