Thanks, that provides some info but I suspect that a lot of words were spoken 
which added a lot more info.

I believe I understand how this will (could) all work for an Internet 
connected system where, basically, you do a network install for a lot of that 
packages (especially those in Fedora Extras).  However, how about the 
unconnected system?  What is the thinking on how it will handle installing 
everything from CD or DVD images?  Will there be CD and/or DVD iso images for 
Extras or will we need to roll our own?

Even for Internet connected systems, if you have a number of systems to do 
installs on, you do not want to have to download the packages for each 
system ... you (or at least I) want to download the packages once and then do 
installs on all of the systems.

I suspect I may be a bit early with these questions and some of the stuff has 
not been thought through just yet ... some general goals established but not 
"how" to do it.
