Description Phil Schaffner 2004-11-19 23:52:32 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Create a rawhide-style rolling repo, but with stable/tested packages
that could be used for either anaconda installs/updates, or yum
updates.  Would save user download/install/update time and network

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do network or ISO install
2. Do updates

Actual Results:  Inefficient process.

Expected Results:  Single install/update process that gives latest
stable packages.

Additional info:

Thanks to David Fletcher for stimulating the thought.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-21 23:46:20 EST
A rolling release w/ISOs would eat up a lot of bandwidth and disk
space, aside from the release engineering and testing efforts involved.
Comment 2 Phil Schaffner 2004-11-22 12:38:05 EST
Thought the extra effort might be problematic, but just to be clear,
was not suggesting new ISOs.  Know that doing more regular ISO respins
has already been discussed and rejected.  Figured the same process
used for rawhide/development updates would work here, just limiting it
to stable packages.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-22 12:41:51 EST
The main concern I have is that none of the packages are tested in an
install environment, and there wouldn't be any automatic testing of
such trees.
