Rerolling an ISO has a number of problems. From increased load on

It's not as simple as 'run some script, and out pops a new iso'.

Given FC releases are supposed to be every 6 months or so, it's
really not worth the pain to do intermediate releases.


Dave, a couple of sites on the web purport to describe methodologies for rebuilding Fedora Core installation CDs with original release rpms updated/replaced by update packages. I have seen these step by step instructions for Fedora Core 2 and Fedora Core 3 releases, but haven't tried them.

Assuming that the step by step instructions actually produce an updated Fedora Core 3 distribution iso set, and such an updated set of iso was made available to the Fedora Project, is there any chance that they would be made available for download ? That would seemingly save some bandwidth by forestalling further downloading of the original isos and subsequent previously released updates by everyone that installs Fedora Core 3 now.
