Yeah; hopefully the video feed will be up soon.
I believe I understand how this will (could) all work for an
connected system where, basically, you do a network install for a lot of
that packages (especially those in Fedora Extras). However, how about the
unconnected system? What is the thinking on how it will handle installing
everything from CD or DVD images? Will there be CD and/or DVD iso images
for Extras or will we need to roll our own?
I'm hoping for the multiple-extras-flavors (Extras:Java / Extras:Games /
Extras:Whatever), which could each have CDs. But I think that network
install is going to be more and more the way.
Even for Internet connected systems, if you have a number of systems
installs on, you do not want to have to download the packages for each
system ... you (or at least I) want to download the packages once and then
do installs on all of the systems.
Caching proxy. :) Or, make your own local mirror.
