Thanks, I have just made some changes on this.
However, I am not a native English speaker so please feel free to double
check it out and make necessary changes.
I'm Michael Wolf and I would like to be a part of the Server Working
I'm currently working with Fedora in the secondary arches with a focus
on the Server release. I would like to broaden my work in this area and
an interest in the areas of release content, installability and

These package groups are included in the Server DVD:
# Web Server environment
However, I can't see why. None of them is uservisible, and none of them
is in the optionlist for server-product-environment, which means they
won't be offered as optional extra groups for it. That's the *only*
environment group you can pick from the GUI in the Server DVD.
So, the only way you could use any of those is with a kickstart from the
Server DVD, or I guess installing them post-install with yum if you
don't have a network available. Is that the use case for them, or is
this just an oversight? The comment makes it sound a bit like at some
point the "Web Server" environment group was expected to be available,
but it is not, the Server product is the only available env group on a
Server DVD install.

Has a lot of desktop stuff, but it'd be nice to have some server
images. Some cockpit ui shots seem logical, and since we have the nice
branding at least one installer UI image, too.
It'd be very helpful if a few people would have time for this today, as
I'm starting to get press requests.

I did a bit of a proof of concept for Cockpit showing a GUI remotely
using noVNC. noVNC is a nice HTML5 VNC implementation. This is wrapped
up as a Cockpit plugin ... and Cockpit provides the WebSocket,
authentication, and all of that. It's very raw at this point ... but in
case it piques anyone's interest. Screenshot:
My current work on this will go as far as polishing up this pull request
into Cockpit code example:
Information on installing/creating plugins here, which you'll need to
understand if you want to try this out. You'll also need Cockpit from
git master, or wait until the next 0.34 release.
If someone has solid interest into building this into a full Cockpit
feature, then they can work with the Cockpit team to prototype, plan
(with use cases), design (with our designer: Andreas) and implement such
Come to #cockpit or cockpit-devel(a)lists.fedoraproject.org
Features built into Cockpit are expected to work out of the box and be
discoverable. But I think that's within the reach of such a VNC based
"access-a-gui-installer-remotely" use case, if someone puts enough time
