Are there any plans to work on laptop/PC optimizations for future releases of Fedora?

By laptop optimizations, I mean including the powertop recommendations by default if you install Fedora on a laptop (well the sound powersaving modes get annoying if you wear headphones, but we can ignore that for now) as well removing unnecessary user-end programs like sendmail that significantly increase boot-time.

You can disable services that you aren't using and set up powertop to tune your system. There's a set of laptop-mode tools that you can use too.

There are no plans to include any of the listed optimization methods in the default package set. The default package set must be one that works for a majority set of users. We supply a minimal set of packages and you can then install the other packages that you need.

Systemd provides the methods to tune your start up process. systemd analyze blame should get you started.

Is laptop-mode-tools not included in the default fedora repos?

$ sudo yum search laptop-mode

Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit

sudo yum whatprovides /laptop-mode

Looks like it's still under review:
