Re: Fedora - The Next Generation

I've been playing round with a couple of ideas:
Create a single CD Fedora installation with only core apps required for

Better inital setup, like a wizard after the install to add domain entries
to automatically configure postfix, samba and the likes, so after the
initial reboot you'll have a fully functional server.


Aditional testing of updates, maybe a separate yum mirror, so nightly
updates install only critical updates.

Beyond the scope, objectives, and interest of Fedora to do "additional testing" for the hope of slightly increased stability. Besides, not all that necessary. If you're installing only the stuff you need, then by all means keep everything up to date!

I'm not very fond of fixed release schedules, if it's broken, fix it and
release a new ISO, this will save us answering the same questions on the
list time after time.

Fedora's purpose in moving forward quickly and pushing the developers to work harder is going to work against you here. While you or anyone could release a new/additional/different ISO, the Fedora Project isn't likely to do so.

By stripping down the initial install we can fokus on making Fedora better
and we can actually implement some of the suggestions on this list.

Aw, come on... inconsistent logic here. Let's say that today you are not involved in improving Fedora in any way. Let's say that you are going to start investing time/effort/money/whatever to improve Fedora. You can always choose where (i.e. in what packages, features, or concepts) to invest that time; the size of the distro or the size of the default (note default) installs do not affect you at all.
