If you get rid of split media, what will happen once you have a
multi-DVD release?

The idea is that multi-DVD is too much crud, and we should be better
structuring our releases to where that's not a problem.  That is, spins
should become more discerning and useful.  Network install methods
should get played up more.  The livecd is a popular way of installing
now, and that's not going to be multi-media.


See also dual-layer DVD, or blu-ray media.



But if you do not have all the rpms on multiple DVD's then is is imcomplete distribution method. If one wants all of Fedora or RHEL then having all of the rpms on multiple DVD's is easier to obtain than mirroring. In the case of RHEL there is no mirroring thus multiple DVD's are required.
