The sever arm image has fedora-release-server, cockpit, xfs etc and
is a minimal Fedora Server install, where the minimal image is a
smaller install. I guess the whole thing is very vague. We could do
a fedora server vagrant image, or minimal vagrant image, but the
latter probably belongs more in the base WG space than the Server
Right, what the Server SIG decided was that we were going to draw a
line in the sand and declare that we would only call something "Fedora
Server" if it met certain minimum functionality (which includes
Cockpit, rolekit, etc.)
A minimal image could still be produced by someone (Base WG, Minimal
SIG, etc.) but would not be permitted to carry the name Fedora Server
(and would not be the Server SIG's responsibility).
