For what it is worth, the original at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SummerOfCode/2007/DebarshiRay reads as:

# Manu has two machines-- one at work and one at home. The former has a
nice Internet connection, while the other one does not. He is a not a
geek, and wants to install a media player, which is there on his office
box, at home.
# Rakesh has five machines, which are not on the same LAN. Although all
are connected to the Internet, the bandwidth is not good and it is
costly to download the same updates and packages on all the machines
individually.
# My grandmother wants to try out Fedora. She does not know about
computers, and finds it difficult to figure out what to install from the
long list of available packages. So, I want to give her a 'yumpack' on a
CD containing the packages she wants to have, so that she can just click
and ask Pirut to install the contents of the pack, without thinking
about anything else.

However, what do you think about the context of Rishi's mail ?
