That's actually an interesting approach! I hadn't thought about this before.
The sugar-logos package doesn't provide all the files the fedora-logos
package does, so I guess one could list the fedora-logos one as a
build requirement in the sugar-logos one and hope that it gets pulled
in time then after making it provide system-logos... but I suppose
we'd need to make sure that sugar-logos stayed out of the non-sugar
Think all you would have to do is a Requires: fedora-remix-logos or
maybe generic-logos, then just list sugar-logos in the kickstart file.
