What are the signatures you're referring to here?

I would avoid the term 'high quality' here, as it would seem to indicate
that the spins in the Kickstart Pool are of low quality. I think a more
correct term here would be 'popular' or some other term to indicate that
a large majority of our users want it, and thus it makes sense to spend
infrastructure and people costs on them.

Ideally this would be a feature of the creation tool. It should be able
to spit out a list of packages used. It would go along with the other
feature I wanted to add, the optional gathering of the srpms used into a
directory for distribution along with the live image.
