Sounds good to me - do you have a suggested list of packages for
base-extras or at least the list of what was pulled from the old base.

Might be good for folks to add those to private install script / meta

Thanks for mentioning linux-firmware -  I just added kernels and a few
other items to my own, but I missed that one
