You are right. I will not add the fai-project repository by
default. Even I recommend to use the newest FAI version when a newbie
starts with FAI, will do not like to force people to upgrade to a new
version, just because I've put a new FAI version into the FAI projects

For example, currently the jessie branch of the FAI projects
repository contains FAI 4.3.3. The next version for jessie will be 5.0
and I do not like to force people to use this version, unless they
have enabled this repo on their own.

Thanks for helping me with this decision.

regards Thomas
