Is there a "way that isn't currently allowed" actually? Spins can put
anything into %post, and some do modify configuration. (If nothing else,
the desktop spins change the default desktop...)
I don't know to what degree this is enforced, but
contains a big warning:
Do NOT change the default behavior of applications. An example is to
configure Nautilus to use the "Browser mode" by default. There may be
valid reasons to change parts of the application, but you'll need to
discuss them with the Spin SIG in your proposal.
Although that is only in the "Live Spins" section. "Installation
"No notes on Installation Spins yet" (as it has for at least the last four
years). Not that I'm one to talk -- documenting stuff is hard. :)
