except basic (~80 packages), medium (~1000 packages) and full (~3400 packages), are there any other useful schemes?

I update my script to a similar one, pointing to the current version (2017), referring to scheme-basic and adding collection-fontsrecommended.

I'll try to use it to generate my manuals; if not successful, I'll upgrade to scheme-medium, and retry.

However, I still feel somehow in the dark, there are lots of collections and I have no idea if they are needed or not for the GCC/OpenOCD/QEMU manuals, and a full install is so large... :-(

Thank you,
