OK I was able to get a standard build done to iso. That is standard FC26 +
Strech-Debain + Whonix.
I also successful built standard + minimal of those to iso as well.
Next I will try adding in certain other templates 1 by 1.
A correction on the instructions to build these 4.0 ISOs:
You need significantly more private store drive space in the VM. I am using a
stand-alone VM FC23 so I have more initial space taken up. Still with an app
vm its 2x what the old docs recommend as a minimum.
For just the standard build I needed 60gigbyes.
For the standard + minimal 65 gig just barely made it. Best to have 70 gigs.
My guess if you wanted to build all the non EOL templates for 4.0rc4 if they
all can be built would be 100 gigs.
I will continue to see what will build and the space needed. My guess is some
laptops especially that are running ssd will not have the drive space to build
depending on what's used up already for your system data. Looks like I finally
have to add the 1tb Samsung Pro SED SSD in the optical bay for vm user data.
Still not sure what program differences between the full-loaded-template vs
Standard-templates. For me I would rather manually add the programs I wanted
in each area. I may try the builds for those so we know if the build or not.
I may also try the last template version to be EOL'd such as fc25 for fedora
etc but that will be last. Too bad I do not have quad xeons 1000 +gigs of ram
workstations vs the T440 with I7 + 16gig. I could get these built in 15-30 min
rather than 3 hrs.

#make iso with FC26-Standard+FC26-Minimal & Stretch-Standard + Stretch-Minimal
+ Whonix 64309MB
