 * NetworkManager
 * D-Bus
 * OpenJDK
 * FreeIPA
 * SELinux
 * PulseAudio

We can't take much credit for OpenJDK. Sure Fedora has done IcedTea and to be in distributions like Fedora out of the box was one of Sun's goals in open sourcing it but 95% of the work has been done outside of Fedora.

 * Fedora XFCE Spin
 * Fedora Electronics Lab
 * Fedora Developers Spin
 * Fedora Games Spin
 * Fedora Hindi Spin

 * Fedora Hosted is the perfect location for hosting your project
