It wouldn't work with the current pull request, because Silverblue uses a
configuration file for Workstation Live. However, we already discuss other solutions for
Silverblue, so it shouldn't be an issue.
Anyway, we would like to maintain all product configuration files until we are done with
the Anaconda modularization. It might be necessary to do some changes across all these
files and it is easier this way. That is the reason why install classes were moved to the
Anaconda repository in the first place.
Another solution could be to just modify fedora-live-workstation.ks and write a new file
to /etc/anaconda/conf.d that will override the hidden_spokes option. Then we don't
need a special configuration file for Workstation Live. The content of the file would look

I have checked the code and the variant name is used only for loading the right product
configuration files. It was introduced quite recently in in a commit at
for this specific purpose.
The spins don't seem to use the configuration file for Fedora Workstation, so it
shouldn't affect them.
Thanks for the explanations, that all seems reasonable to me.
