Please make corrections and clarifications to the wiki page.

== Fedora 8 Test 3 ==
 * release candidate tree done (minus live images) which is synced to RDU
 * working through some problematic issues with live images right now 
 * adding "new" packages now that need to be on the DVD would slip the release

== Regular Fedora Releases on CD ==
 * we don't explain clearly anywhere why we don't do CD release anymore (regular ISOs not live image)
 * doing regular CD releases increases disk space on mirrors, compose time, and QA paths considerably
 * the i386 Live CD is usable in CD form, or the network based install options from rescue or boot.iso
 * creating CD sets can be created with existing free tools--LUGs can produce such things for their members, or whatever.
 * if CD releases were to be re-instituted the Fedora board would have to make decision that it is really important
    * QA would need to sign off
    * face possible wrath of the mirrors
