The problem is the current infrastructure doesn't allow for it to be
installed by default while remaining deselectable. While that might
get fixed, it's highly unlikely to get fixed for F18.
Ah, that is very unfortunate. What do you think about integrating LibreOffice into GNOME
desktop group/environment in F18? That means the checkbox won't be available at all,
people will have to remove LibreOffice post-install if they don't want it. If I
consider how many people want GNOME desktop with an office suite and how many people want
GNOME desktop without an office suite, it seems like a good idea to me. It's more
friendly approach. Once the infrastructure is in place in F19, we can separate it again
into a standalone checkbox.
And what about the LiveCD? We don't have any comps problems there. I haven't seen
any response. I think this is the correct place where questions like this should be
