Re: Selling systems with Fedora preloaded.

Yeah.  Clarifying the position of Fedora Extras is a clear goal.

I'd like to be able to say:

Any distribution of FC + any strict subset of Extras == official Fedora

Any distribution of FC + other stuff (maybe + signed agreement, depending) == based on Fedora

Yes, this kinda brakes the "keep it simple" objective... In any case, from what I gather even delivering Fedora Extras packages can be considered non standard.
If that's the case now, that *must* be changed in the clarified/additional
rules being worked on.

That is what I've been trying to figure out... 'cause, from both the guidelines and the discussion here, it would seem that FE packages delivered *pre-installed* is a violation to the default Fedora installation, as these packages are not part of Core and, as such, not entirely delivered with the CD/DVD media the customer might receive... However, the repository configured inside the default install, could that be considered as equal as to receiving the installation media, as the install media for such packages *is* yum?
