In the case of FEL, the desktop environment and the extra software
which needed for electronics are separate items.
with %include fedora-livecd-kde.ks

Thereby, the core is being prepared and developed by KDE sig while,
we(FEL) can concentrate on electronics only.

So the only testing needed is to test the extra software needed for
FEL, normally I test each software through my own designs, but little
by little I'm creating an automated testsuite that will qualify each
new update and the design tools  FEL provide.

The testsuite is open and can be used by other contributors as well.

I once proposed this idea to szdiallas (FedoraEducation) I think he
opted some of FEL ground work already so that he can concentrate on
the goals of his spin and less software headaches.
