A spins policy is being drafted, but the most important guideline is
that to use the Fedora name, a spin can only include software from the
Fedora repository.

Currently I don't think we have any cut and dried rules on what sort of
default-changing is acceptable.  Some people have indicated that
changing default behaviors in %post is acceptable.  I think maybe this
is not the right time or place to simply declare what's in that policy.

To follow the policy development, join the fedora-advisory-board list,
and/or check the archives at:
