The part about not making install images all the time is listed as a 
"discussion point", part of the official proposal:
'Do we always make install images for rawhide, or only make images for 
pending release tree?'

Big picture it seems like we've suddenly taken away access to a huge 
amount of potential nightly and periodic installer testing.  Is this 
addressed somewhere in the proposal that I missed?

Are there particular reason for not creating the images any more that 
might help everyone understand more why this is a good idea?

Can you add something to the proposal explaining when, how often, and 
where install images will be created?
