I'm not misunderstanding the concept of a LiveCD in any way, I'm just disagreeing about how important having CD media released by the Fedora Project is exactly.

So, not releasing CD sets is like saying you need to yum upgrade although it is not recommended just because someone out there isn't using the LiveCD installer because they tried Fedora and felt comfortable. Someone is actually needing CD sets, and based on the numbers that has been at least 760 people in the last 4 weeks.

I think the better solution is to support live upgrades better and don't do multi arch in live images by default so that they fit into a CD for all architectures.

If only we could fulfill todays needs with whatever the future promises.

The need is actually for the next release. There is no reason reason we couldn't do put more effort into what I had just outlined now onwards for the next development cycle. We could release Fedora 8 live images and when we release Fedora 9, we make live upgrades a supported option. That would solve the actual problem instead of working around it.

I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding you but I don't think you can call what we had with FC6 and lost with F7 "a work around" for a problem that we've introduced with F8 -no upgrades using CDs.
