As long as "audience" is kept informed I think most thing will be fine,
But, I'm am a bit worried by "some" who are of the opinion if not Gnome,
then dump it. Without the option to install any pkg that may not have
the G word in it's name or origin.
Personally, I know currently, most DEs' can be installed with yum
groupinstall. But, that may not always be the case.
I haven't seen any indication that anyone wants that to change as part
of .next. What we're currently discussing is basically a deliverables
question: what collections-of-packages-in-some-sort-of-lump do we want
to release, under what names and branding, with what level of support,
etc etc etc. But I haven't seen anything in even the most radical
proposals which involves dumping non-Product bits from the repos.
