after some more prodding i was able to get the BLAG scripts to build
ISOs based on fedora and free-dora v27 for each of the openbox and LXDE
configurations for both i386 and x86_64 - the build does succeed without
the 'kernel-libre-firmware' package - the configs had, for some reason,
a glob *-firmware* blacklisted which was why it failed to load on v25 -
as far as i can tell, the only other important missing packages that may
have been in the BLAG repo are: 'blag-release', 'blag-release-notes',
and 'blag-logos' - i replaced these with 'fedora-release',
fedora-release-notes', and 'fedora-logos' to get the build to complete -
im not so familiar with fedora to know what these files represent; but
the LiveISO environment and anaconda installer are visibly branded as
fedora - the installer fails, however; but over-all, i would say that
BLAG is viable moving into the future

there is currently a licensing issue however - the only indication of
any license is a post install hook that tries to add a GPL file onto the
LiveISO; however this file is not found

  cp $INSTALL_ROOT/usr/share/doc/*-release/GPL $LIVE_ROOT/GPL

that 'GPL' file was presumably in the missing 'blag-release' package but
none of the "kickstart" files posted on the trisquel forum mention a
license - for this reason i think the blag repos would need to be
restored in order to make this project legit - the trisquel forum post
mentions that these "kickstart" files originally came from the BLAG FTP
site so perhaps there is something there that would properly indicate
the license of the "kickstart" files
