Well, just look at the anaconda pull request: we change variant_name
from "Workstation" to "Workstation Live" in fedora-silverblue.conf
the export of `ANACONDA_PRODUCTVARIANT` from "Workstation" to
"Workstation Live" in liveinst.
I am not sure of the consequence of these changes, but experience
teaches me to be nervous any time some kind of significant string just
ups and changes like that :) I don't know if that string winds up
embedded somewhere in installed systems, for instance (and thus other
things might be parsing it), or if other bits of anaconda may care
about the variant name and haven't yet been changed...
Do dnf or gnome-software upgrades use it? Updates I expect not, but
what determines what new things to include in an edition or product
and what things to remove?
