Can you explain why you are rebuilding fedora-release?

I thought we provided generic-release package so that you don't have
to rebuild fedora-release as part of customization.  generic-release
or anything structured like it in terms of provides, should be a drop
in replacement for fedora-release.

The only packages which should be explicitly requiring
'fedora-release' instead of 'system-release' are packages which have
fedora trademarks.

if I were are going to make a custom release package for local use,
I'd start with generic-release  rename it jef-release and fill it with
the repository definitions I care about. Install jef-release, remove
fedora-release  and then enjoy life.
