Livecd-creator generates a pre-release ISO from the stable branch
Last modified: 2016-06-22 11:30:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Livecd-creator generates a pre-release ISO from the stable branch  when the generic-release package is included in the kickstart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install Fedora, install the kickstart and livecd-tools packages. Exclude fedora-release, fedora-logos, fedora-release-notes & add generic-release, generic-logos and generic-release-notes in the fedora-live-workstaton kickstart. Boot the generated ISO and start the installer, Anaconda shows the pre-release warnings.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh Fedora Install
2. Install Packages [livecd-tools-23.2-3.fc23.x86_64 / spin-kickstarts-0.23.6-1.fc23.noarch / fedora-kickstarts-0.23.6-1.fc23.noarch]
3. Make changes to the Workstation kickstart package file [fedora-workstation-packages.ks]
4. Spin the kickstart fedora-live-workstation.ks
5. Boot the generated ISO, start liveinst, Anaconda shows the pre-release warnings.
Pre-release ISO generated
Final Build ISO should be generated
If the fedora-release package is included in the kickstart [generic-release excluded], the correct ISO [Final 23] is generated.
Generic Packages Versions:
generic-logos.noarch 17.0.0-7.fc23 @System
generic-release.noarch 23-0.7 @System
generic-release-notes.noarch 23-0.7 @System
In live images the final state is triggered by the release portion of the package providing system-release. It needs to be -1 for a final release.
I'll do a new build tonight.

The update resolves the issue but seems to have introduced a new bug, the file /etc/redhat-release has only one line [Generic Release 23 (Twenty Three)] but LiveInst reads/displays it twice.
