Pungi doesn't just use the comps.xml list of packages and the given repo to
make the install images?  It gets some of its content from the running OS?
Perhaps what Pungi gets from the running OS could be added to the
documentation when that gets written.

And apparantly can't be used by a Pungi that runs on FC6.  Too bad.
Perhaps I'll be able to make do with the comps.xml file on the DVD.  (If it
won't work, it would help to say how it won't work, because it seems to
work.)
