Why is there no mini-iso any more?

It is explained pretty well in the release information.
But, basically, the contents of the disks were reorganized
in the 5.xxx release which made the separate mini-iso less necessary.

But, I wouldn't mind still having a mini-iso.   It is less to 
download in one chunk.   Since I would then install over the net (ftp)
you might think that inconsequential.  But, the less size file to download, 
the better and I would be doing the network/ftp install anyway.

But, I can survive this way if I have to.
