Re: I gotta ask this ...

Thanks Alan!

Build all the packages: well how, exactly, does one do this? Say I'm at RH9 and I want to build the Fedora Core from source. When I build the RPMs then the result will overwrite my RH9 binaries, will it not?

What I'm looking for is a documented sequence of steps, like "Linux From Scratch" that will result in an ISO of Fedora Core. Starting with the source RPMs, of course :)

As for the Todo list item, is this actively being worked on? Who would I contact to offer my help?

Not really secret sauce. Build all the packages, boot the result, build
all the packages again with it, figure out how to fit it all and the installer
on the CD images and burn.

Lots of this is currently done by the Red Hat internal build systems and
those are tied to a lot of Red Hat specific baggage you really don't want.

An external build system is on the todo list for Fedora
