Excellent point. I will remove public services and revise this to focus on workstations for office workstations and laptops.

Another good point. I am not familiar yet with creating collections of packages for a spin, but can research this, thanks.

So this sounds like it might be a server variant instead of a live
media? If NPO's are intended to use it to run services, I would think
basing it off server and perhaps working on some server roles would be
good here...

Perhaps you meant that this would be good for NPO's users to use as a
workstation to talk to their servers?

If this is a collection of packages, perhaps it would be as well served
by having a group available of these packages? Then anyone could
install those from any other Fedora install. Of course they would need
to have network then...
