Although ISOs are nice in some cases, they're also not so nice in
others ;)  They're somewhat permanent, you don't get a lot of advantages
with rsync, etc.  Having them sort of implies that they've been somewhat
tested.  Having rawhide installable is right now basically zero cost --
it's there, if it works great, if not, oh well.   And we get to having
test releases with ISOs anyway :)

My recommendation for testing the devel tree is to keep a copy somewhere
and then do nfs or http installs.  You could even have fun with squid
and not make a local mirror for http installs if you really really
wanted to ;)

Cheers,

Jeremy
