Hmm. This would be great, but I think we may get some pushback on this
one. (Especially as kernel rpms are so big).
Just wondering: What's "big" here round about? We are talking about
round about 20 - 21 MByte per kernel (kernel + devel) afaics; would we
ship all flavors (PAE) as vanilla? Maybe most, but not all (xen for
/me does some math:
ix86: default, PAE
ppc: default, SMP, kdump
Makes 6 kernels, e.g. 120 MByte. If someone puts up a new game for
review that needs a 120 MByte data-package would we send him away? No we
wouldn't. So why not ship the vanilla kernel in the proper repos?
Ohh, sorry, I forgot the debuginfo packages. Ouch, they are 200 MByte in
size. Well, that becomes a problem, but:
I'm thinking that a repo on people.fedoraproject.org
the best of the bunch.
Which has a 150**MByte Quota iirc -- so you can't ship the debuginfo
stuff there either. And non of the other Kernels that you ship via your
p.r.c stuff (well, as long as you don't get more space offered, which I
assume might be possible).

I think most of the concerned parties (rel-eng, infrastructure etc) are
represented on this list already. but I've no objection.
If they don't speak up here sooner or later I'll start a thread in
