Yes, I tried to point out that I was not complaining about the bugs
in the initial release and that I don't generally expect waiting
for the next release to be the right thing either.

Yet in the releases before 9, someone at RH was able to make a
reasonable guess at when there was enough advancement to cut a
point release and historically, the X.2 versions were pretty good.

So far the machines I manage that run fedora have decent internet
connections and I can update after the install.  And I usually start
from the k12ltsp cut anyway which is a little bit ahead.  I don't
think that's the case for everyone, though.

It's not really what I think of as development.  Is there a
fedora-packager or iso-builder list?
