the only issue with that is what / how would you define 'servers'. Its
easier to work with something like a package list of what would be
considered reasonable to have on a default install, then remove the
option to make installtime package selections and deliver only that raw
package manifest thats been pre-selected.

ok, xfs is venturing into centosplus lands...

How about you work out a list, we can then all argue over it, whatever
packages get onto the list then can pose a potential manifest to work with ?

yup, I am trying to automate things as much as possible, so once we have
something in the grinding machine, it should stay there.
