I have no objections to including an easy and up front method to install all that is available on the install medium.

One of the things to note is that Fedora is going away from the model of
a large core. At least in theory.

Many apps have been moved from Core to Extras - for example, AbiWord,
Pan, Gnumeric, etc. - as this transition happens, "install everything"
is not what it use to be.


With all of the trimming down proposed and parts that already have taken place, it would not be worthwhile to have install medium which only provided for core. Since Core is targeted for extreme reduction, an everything install would probably be default. :-)



There is even a push to move KDE out of core and into Extras:

Isn't there a group that has repositories for KDE for Redhat (Fedora) already? Are the current developers/packagers going to work within the Fedora-Extras group for KDE?


Installing "everything" for the purposes described in this thread will
not have the same effect - you are going to have to have all of Extras
to get that effect, because a lot of what you get when you "install
everything" in older Fedora Core _is_ going bye bye out of Core anyway.


Is the goal to make an affordable RHEL or for Less for more as in fossil fuels in recent practices?
