In general terms, what packages did you have to install or uninstall?
(There are package groups, but those may need refinement.)

See, however, Bug 856301, Comment 1:
Bug 856301 - Feature reqeust: Bring back package level customization

Comment 2 Brian Lane 2013-07-16 00:35:21 UTC
You can easily install/uninstall packages after install.

Comment 3 Andre Robatino 2013-07-16 02:05:01 UTC
In a related note, it's supposed to be possible to use a partial kickstart file (specifying nothing but the package set) to do this, but currently it's almost unusable. See

Sorry, don't know why the needinfo was removed. I did not have the needinfo box checked, so it shouldn't have happened.
