Ideally it would not only install those packages, but configure them

default desktop settings to do that as well. This is something that
could be done in the spin %post or the like (all the other spins setup
various config there), or perhaps in a seperate package like a
'netizen-privacy' that makes those changes.
But, but ...
So, you not only include say tor, but you setup the browser to use
by default, etc.
... then there is the issue of choice. I am paranoid, but I also have
strong opinions on how my desktop should look and behave. Will we be
offering different variants of the Netizen spin, then?
Or have we finally given up on this choice thing? ;)
You could take that as a general criticism of most of the non-DE spins
I would be happier if someone did the hard work of making things more
secure, in the products and spins that we already have. I don't think
our users should have to choose between a more secure and a less
secure Fedora. eg., just because someone wants to use Tor, doesn't
mean that she should have to install a different flavour of
Fedora. She should be able to configure it in any of the flavours or
products that she is already using.
Other than that, I have found it hard to comprehend the text on the
Wiki. It spends a lot of time talking about a paper from 1943 and
physiological needs. I don't understand why "citizens" are considered
alternative users of Fedora.
