Why is there no mini-iso any more?

Some dingdong in the release build team took it upon himself to
decide that it was no longer necessary and left it out in 5.4. Check
the questions list archives for more details if you need them. A PR
was submitted about this and the normal typical response was given
that this is a voluntary maintainer group and you get what they what
to give you, and if you don't like it then use something else.  Sure
is a very poor attitude to be showing toward the dialup users who
regular use the mini.iso because its small size is quick to download
over dialup connection.

I was wondering why the latest releases don't have a mini iso? (An
iso with only base installation, no extra packages)
