I can understand Kevin's sentiments, but at the time we are in
development, and the port to F9 is a major undertaking that I cannot
focus on right now. We will tackle it, but there are more pressing

And some of the stuff we have on F7 will be really hard to reimplement
on F9 - if anyone is keen on lending a hand with porting our odd
network setup scripts to F9, he or she will earn my deepest thanks.
And possibly a gig with us too if desired :-)

Is there a "base" commandline liveCD for F7? Our current spin is a
X-less server setup.
