Actually, the Fedora Unity project releases a DVD and CD set of EVERY 
SINGLE PACKAGE in Fedora in one set of install media. They call it the 
"Everything Spin." The problem with this is... it is 4 DVDs or 23 CDs.

I really doubt OS X has applications that do all of the things a 4 DVD / 
23 CD set of media for Fedora would have.

So is the point to make a more usable version of Fedora? Or is the point 
to ship everything in the initial install?

What is the goal you are looking to achieve? It seems really unclear to me.
