The major change from F-13 -> F-14 was python 2.7, alot of the rest of it
was quite a minor update from a desktop perspective, but I suspect for us
the move to 2.7 will have a large effect.

We're getting closer, my A3 arrived today and I'm hoping to be able to spin
up first XO 1.75 image in the next day or so, although it will be cut down
to mostly console we've got most of the X deps there and once the issues
with the koji hub settle down we should be full steam ahead for mass
rebuild. Any noarch packages (alot of the python) will be just mass imported
from upstream too.
