Basically I wanted to follow the minimal group defined in the
comps.xml file (except some firmware not needed for arm).
Working against a fedora image can probably work, but only something
older than centos 7, so normallly Fedora 19 (so that packages are
updated by centos 7 trees). If you can start working on that , that
would probably help, and at least produces some "momentum" for the
final image :-)

OTOH, it would be good to document how to do that "from scratch" when
we'll want to produce such image, and each specific thing that needs
to be solved for some boards.

Thanks for your help !
