I just deployed tails on a flash drive, and were busy tweaking it. Is it possible to persistently remove some stock software packages from my copy of tails? I tried to apt-get remove them, but they reappeared on startup. Also, I understand that added applications can be reinstalled each time by caching them at persistent storage and appending them to live-additional-software.conf, but my point is not reverse of this, i.e. actually keeping the packages and removing them at startup. I straight out don't want them to be present and use space in my flash drive.
(And as a personal comment, who would care to use audacity for a distro based on such specific set of operations anyway? Some default packages look really absurd on tails. Anyways...)
