Everything installations are generally a bad idea.

Generally, but by no means always a bad idea.

Perhaps we should get the "yum install \*" option removed from yum
then, and removed from kickstart too?  I'm joking, of course, but I
hope that you can see that by providing workarounds you are validating
our viewpoint.
I dont consider a yum install \* a valid workaround since I dont see a problem at all . The tool provides the capability and I have never used it because I think its pretty much useless to install everything available in the repositories but its available and I wanted to point out that. Its humanly impossible to test all the software manually. Some of that work is being done using automated test cases in the build system. Users should install software that they use and can test manually for the test/devel releases which is limited. If you must use a everything installation on unusual occasions then kickstart is powerful enough to manage that and tons more. If you can work on making kickstart profile generation in a web interface and similar things easier apart from the system-config-kickstart GUI tool I would welcome that. Work is already being done to document kickstart capabilities better in the installation guide.
