Public bug reported:
Due to the change in bug# 1621210, ghostscript now recommends fonts-
noto-cjk. This package is a ~76MB in size and put the Ubuntu Server ISO
well over the 700MB limit.
The Ubuntu Server team has considered the following:
1) Remove the print server task. Currently, in Xenial and Yakkety, the
print server task does not even show up as an option due to bug#
1624519. However, removing this is a rather large tasks to take up right
before a release. We would like to avoid this option if possible.
2) Blacklist fonts-noto-cjk in the server-ship seed . We were told
that blacklisting is for very specific causes and this was not an
appropriate use case.
3) Change the recommends of ghostscript on fonts-noto-cjk.
