How do you define/configure a "good default course"?

 I've recently posted a patch to the yum ML which would allow Fedora (or
any active repo.) to configure these choices manually. We could then
also easily have different defaults for the desktop vs. the server
spins.

Where would you store per-spin defaults, as they all point to the
same repo?

Ahh, I didn't think the spins did that (they are just different sets of
default packages then?) ... atm. that wouldn't be trivial to work
around, but it could be done by providing a repo. just for the extra
repometadata ... or we could change the proposed metadata syntax to
solve this?

Curiously enough you could make a fedora spin repodata now with mergerepo and then modifyrepo to add the spin-specific comps and provider-selection metadata all pointing back to 'everything' for the actual packages.
