I think a good approach is both a package and an online gallery. Put 
everything in the online gallery so anyone can use it (not resticted to 
Fedora or even Linux users) and a selection packaged in the repository.

The ultimate criteria for selection into the package is size: figure-out 
which is the size limit (20MB, 50MB?) for the package to be *ever* (not 
right now, but maybe at some point in the future) accepted on the 
install DVD and select the best until we reach that limit.
