News for you: The F7 packages of today will not be available next
year. Fedora is a constant, moving target. If you want to deploy a
specific set of packages you will need to archive those packages in
your own repository and/or create your own custom CD/DVD using pungi
or revisor.  If you do not want to go through that hassle use a long
term distro such as White Box or CentOS.
