Intention of fedora-chromium-config in base image?

Hello,

Does someone know the background/intention of including fedora-chromium-config in the base image despite shipping Firefox as the default browser?

rpm -ql fedora-chromium-config-1.1-7.fc33.noarch

It’s listed in Tree - workstation-ostree-config - Pagure.io from https://pagure.io/fedora-comps/blob/main/f/comps-f33.xml.in#_5456. We should probably exclude it. Will make a PR.

See the discussion in the PR for the explanation for why this package is needed.

Hmmm. I understand the intention, but it seems really odd to provide a configuration for a proprietary package like chrome (non-chromium) in a Fedora base image. Hopefully a reverse requirement can be implemented in the future.
