Default Tidy up of the xs-0.5 yum repo - what differentiates OLPC's XS from vanilla Fedora?

A useful bit of info, and a chance ot say thanks :-) The composition
on the XS release 0.5 breaks down like this.

A couple of packages that are in Fedora rawhide (or making a beeline
for it), but we needed ahead of time - thanks to the many Fedorans
that jumped in and helped!:

./fakeroot-1.9.6-16.fc7.i386.rpm (an old, buggy version is in F9)

A couple packages with custom patches...

And some written-from-scratch packages -


Luckily, the OLPC XS delta isn't as large or as punishing as the XO
delta. We do use anaconda and yum in perhaps new and unexpected ways
-- we're right now hurting a bit on those fronts. OTOH, just like the
XO, we need smaller memory and disk footprints, through
less/better/smaller daemons and smarter, tighter dependencies (which
have improved quite a bit lately - thanks!).
