lorax treebuilder changes most of the syntax for putting some "stuff"
[things which are not visible as Packages/*.rpm in the resulting DVD]
into an install image, but in theory it is as least as good or better
than the old buildinstall machinery.  If it was done before lorax,
then it should be possible now.

Just like before:  [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=748663#c5]
* Put the updated packages you want in a directory.
* Run 'createrepo' on that directory.
* Add an appropriate 'repo' line to your kickstart. For example:
   repo --name=localrepo --baseurl=file:///[path to repo] --cost=1

Nothing has changed with regard to kickstart descriptions of installed packages.

As I learned, there are two types on packages in the installer DVD, which are packages selected to install by default (Gnome Desktop, Printer Service, etc) but we can drop them during the customization and other packages we can select our own at the customization window of anaconda. But LiveDVD do not allow to customize to the user but it install every thing we define in the kickstart file.

My question is how we can define the two types of packages within the kickstart file which we use to build the installer DVD.

i have build an ISO using the pungi by choosing the default kickstart but when i copied all the applications on my LiveDVD kickstart the second ISO gone up to 4.9GB of size.

Btw, I have my own repos which i use to build the LiveDVD of my Fedora remix. I used those local repos in the kickstart file when i build the installer DVD ISO.

Do we need to use --cost=1 argument?

I use generic-logos and generic-release packages for re-branding  I hope I could use the same package here, but how can I set those packages to be install without user selection?

I did some changes to /etc/skel in the %post of the kickstart I used build LiveDVD, can I use same here?
