Description/Summary: This project is a web frontend to the Revisor utility, which allows anyone to easily create a custom fedora disk with selected packages, and other kickstart options with a nice GUI.

  • Have a good kickstart building web GUI (almost done, just raid to fix)
  • Setup a web interface to a build system, so that they can take the kickstart files and get an ISO from it (started interface)
  • Create a public showcase area where you can download other people's custom ISO's (started in page showcase)
  • Add in the option to take and join parts from other people's custom fedora builds and create your own
  • Add in a rating feature to the public showcase
  • Integrate Fedora Account System with the public showcase and all login system
