Is there a doc somewhere that has a list of Fedora packages that slinky
installs?  I once started the process of reducing a Fedora 6 install to
a minimum but didn't finish it . .

I haven't looked closely at slinky but it seems to me that once there is
a working version (which there is) most of the work should be done? - I
mean updating slinky for later versions of Fedora should be a small part
of the work?  Am I missing something?
