Move to Fedora Extra :

Lynx (or elinks)


lynx is needed for mutt to do html reading on text logins. Its also fairly
important for accessibility for some users. Elinks I wouldn't worry about

Lynx is also an important application for when one is not capable of using a GUI to browse html sites. I find the program valuble and not "cruft".
Mc is a very handy cli application also and should be included in the core installation.


Is the concept of Fedora Extras to push programs off to the side or to find a better location for programs that are close to the upstream developers model in containment?

Is there work in making compatible iso files for Fedora Extras to enable installing them during an initial fresh installation?

programs for inclusion from my point are xorg-x11, gedit, mc, mozilla (full suite), lynx, various server applications, up2date (or a better, configurable, GUI capable updating tool.)
