Comment 4 Alexander Todorov 2010-04-30 07:55:50 UTC
RHEL6.0-20100428.3-Server-x86_64-DVD1.iso with anaconda-13.21.32-1.el6 doesn't contain the images/README file on the DVD. 

In fact there are no files named README at all on the DVD. 

Is this the intended fix?

Comment 5 Dennis Gregorovic 2010-04-30 10:53:35 UTC
That is the intended fix from the anaconda perspective.  They're not in the documentation business, so it doesn't make sense for them to maintain the README file.  

If we still want a README on the DVD, I can follow up with the docs team to have them put together the text and then I would tweak the compose process to pull that into the DVD.

Thanks Dennis. Moving to VERIFIED.

Comment 7 John T. Rose 2010-04-30 15:04:23 UTC
Well, this certainly isn't the resolution I had in mind. The README file was useful in the past and people do ask questions about the files in that directory in community support channels on IRC. I hope you will consider including one explaining the purpose of the files in the images directory on the media.
