hi |jef|

i think thats a pretty good idea of dealing with things in a fair way.

but just a question... what if i add a single package that isnt yet in
extras nor core... am i not allowed to call it "based on fedora" with
only minor changes that are documented in a clean way?
with having a distro that is 99,9% fedora (e.g. a live cd... e.g. with
distcc...) wouldnt it be still based on fedora from a pure technical
point of view?
How would i be able to call that live cd then?
