Then why put updates in rawhide? For the live isos? I know there is a
way with updages.img files to test, but creating them is beyond me.
Also, I guess we could use Mr. Keating's pungi method.
It is too bad that the good old days of easily testing the cool changes
being made in anaconda are over.
I think this is a severe mischaracterization. I really think that this
change should actually make testing /less/ difficult - in that the thing
you're testing will be something we at least think /should/ work.
Think of this as a plan to make testable images flow pretty often, but to
limit /untestable/ images.
If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.
