When I originally downloaded the
Install macOS Mojave.app for the original release 14.0.22, I got a 6.03 gig file.
Today I replaced that file by downloading the installer fresh from the App Store for 14.1.0. The app is only 22 megs! So obviously this is just a shell that I imagine downloads the needed content over the internet at runtime.
But I need an offline installer, for clean-installs on various Macs and for creating virtual machines.

What about just using the original installer, then updating immediately the newly installed OS to .1? That .1 update was a whopper, over 3 gigs! I really want to avoid repeating that updater download. I really need a fully-loaded offline installer.
