The LCC core will be fully reproducible from source. You may
(and probably will) lose any certifications if you do that,
for the same reason that the distros reproduced from the Red
Hat Enterprise Linux source (e.g., White Box Linux) lose them.
But it won't be take it or leave it. If reproducing from
source and/or modifying the core packages is more important to
you than the certifications, you will be able to do that.
