Right -- that probably won't affect OOB. But any changes in prefdm,
tty/console handling will.

Do you mean F-14 image or F13? I'd suggest: don't worry about building
an image yet, focus on the F-14 rebuild and the problematic packages
(that list that included csound, libabiword...) plus those we need for
dracut-modules-olpc (busybox & its deps...).

When you want to work on full images for the XO, let me know and we'll
have a good session on irc/skype/whatever on koji2 where I can show
you what we have.

What I'd prefer -- it it sounds reasonable -- is that you help us get
the core of f-14 stuff ready, and then I'd just rebase the bits from
our f13-arm OOB branch on the tip of master.
