There are two ways to go about it - a good way and, a not-so-good way.
The latter means clubbing together all "like" software into a spin via
a fairly trivial kickstart. So, what you get is a bunch of
applications shoved into a spin without having a storyline. The former
is sifting through the applications using a story and, choosing them
so that they are effectively used from Day0. In short, what I suggest
is getting someone with domain knowledge of this field involved as
well. I think that was one of the reasons FEL became wildly

Having said all that, if you are cooking up a kickstart - I can
volunteer to do QA :)
