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.
