so PLEASE install a new fedora and remove anything not needed for
ssh, rsync, scp and tell me how long it takes to find all of them

what you do with such a machine:
decide what services you will install on this bare setup or
using as it is as backup-host where rsync is enough

much of them you can only find with trial and error by look  what yum
says to a "yum remove" because "package-cleanup --leaves" does not
find most things without "lib" in the name

and then tell why the count of unneeded base-packages should be increased
remember: "base" is defined the absoloutly minimum to boot a system and
log in as root!
