Re: New features to kickstart



I think the "--nobase" is a good idea. We regularly have to mangle ours
to clean out junk we don't want. One other idea we had but never had
time to implement was to give some sort of option to specifically
exclude a package. This way you could leave the generic base but
specifically ask for some packages not to be loaded. Never have found
time to implement this though...
