From now on, Rawhide will not have install images. Rawhide is a never
stopping never freezing repository of packages. To get to rawhide
you'll need to start with say F12 and either point to the rawhide repo
during install, or yum update to it post install.
The part about not making install images all the time is listed as a
"discussion point", part of the official proposal:
'Do we always make install images for rawhide, or only make images for
pending release tree?'
Big picture it seems like we've suddenly taken away access to a huge
amount of potential nightly and periodic installer testing. Is this
addressed somewhere in the proposal that I missed?
Are there particular reason for not creating the images any more that
might help everyone understand more why this is a good idea?
Can you add something to the proposal explaining when, how often, and
where install images will be created?
