there is no new documentation regarding this in the winston reference guide ...

This is now reassigned to the correct docs contact. Thanks!

You can put "%installclass" in your kickstart file and then start writing python
code which runs to the end of the file.

This is not recommended since it can cause many problems if the code is not
correct or does not work with the existing Anaconda code.

We are not going to mention it in our kickstart documentation.
