if I remember correctly, wasn’t it you who informed me (about a year ago in the context of F32/33) that booting from everything DVD and select „Fedora Server“ does not result in an identical installation as booting from Server DVD and selecting „Fedora Server“? (when I wondered about the installation on a rented remote hardware where only „Everything“ was available). 

Anyway, no case to worry at the current status, I think. I will test this more closely. At the moment I am still completing and refining my dedicated server test environment.

Besides the question about the boot medium and group selection, the January 18 build has still the issue with /etc/resolv.conf being a file instead of a link (and thus breaking split DNS). The bug is marked as resolved (in December/January according to Adam), maybe the build was made just before that became effective. We have to keep this in mind.
