What is says to me is that people should feel free to produce whatever 
.ks files they like -- customize to your heart's delight -- but just 
realize that Fedora probably can't host them for you.

Creating a spin is just a matter of a kickstart file that anyone can use 
livecd-creator on.

Hosting a spin is an entirely separate set of questions.

I am interested in promoting a lot of the first, but not in causing 
Fedora burdens in the second.
