I am interested in doing a customized install of Fedora. I booted into the NetInstall image and got to the "Software Selection" page. There are many "Add-Ons for Selected Environment" there that can be selected with checkboxes. Is there any way to see what packages will be installed for the different add-ons?

Credit to the installer team -- I actually found the answer by clicking "Help!" in the "Software Selection" window:

Environments and add-ons are defined using a comps.xml file in your installation source (for example, in the repodata/ directory on the full Fedora Server Installation DVD).

For Fedora 28, I found this file at https://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/28/Everything/x8664/os/repodata/b140b2b55e06b7ba6c765d27dd9dbae905745e788a97a390be8b82980b8c282e-comps-Everything.x8664.xml
