Re: Anaconda Proposal: F19

I hope to see a correction in F19 for keyboard selection process.  What was working in earler Fedora releases  is currently not working well.  Bugzilla entries were made.

When we select an alternate keyboard and move it to position 1, its layout should appear in the test, not the startup default.

When we wish to look at the keyboard layout, the layout from circa 2005 is shown.  Please use the layouts that were in Fedora 17.  (PC105)

Finally,  Consider a two user system.  User A wants Gnome, User B wants KDE.  The DE selection should not be mutually exclusive.

An updates image is just a cpio archive of files.  I really hesitate to
add extra metadata to that format.

But yeah I do agree with this.  We should definitely display the fact
that you are using an updates.img somewhere.  I'll look at what can be
