This was obviously implemented before I jumped on board as a
Co-Maintainer of the Design Suite Spin.
But why was this little icon link originally implemented and placed on
the desktop, I can't really see what purpose it serves in the big
How would people feel if we removed it?
I'm open to all opinions and views.

Have you found something that is working really well in your schedule?
Or maybe you've found something you believe would work better in the
Update the schedule retrospective page now to capture all of the
important details as they happen:
Firstly sorry for the cross post, I think its some what relevant for both.
I started this discussion in the F-13 timeframe but it was too late in
the cycle and was considered to risky, leading up to the beta it might
be a little close too.
Looking through the various kickstart files in the git repo while
looking at a couple of issues that I'm seeing on my own spins I have a
couple of queries.
Firstly in fedora-live-minimization.ks and fedora-livecd-desktop.ks
there's a whole lot of removal of packages. This is basically what i
do in the fedora-live-mini.ks and I think things like @printing can
(and should be) removed from base so that other kick starts don't have
to explicitly remove everything that it adds in. Its easy enough for
the people that want printing to add the one liner into their own
There's also a comment in the fedora-live-minimization.ks about
removing them from comps for F-14. Is there a reason this hasn't
happened? I was also suprised to see things like "printing" related
things in the base-x group in comps. It looks like someone had this on
their todo list, is it still there?
Ultimately I would like to get rid of the fedora-live-mini.ks file and
use the mainline base. I believe that base should be exactly that...
the base/core packages and all the useful scripting. Then possibly
have a base-desktop which adds all the core X stuff that any desktop
spin would need (plus associated related scripts that all could make
use of like X auto login). From there a desktop based spin would just
need to pull in the base-desktop.ks to get all the core stuff to get
to a minimal X.
