Sorry, I might be shortsighted, but why is the installer different to
other packages? Sure, it's a bit more work to produce updates for older
releases, but isn't that what we do everywhere else as well? So why
can't the installer guys do it as well?

Further: we create update images like
http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/updates-f8-yumloop.img
so those problems we are talking about get analyzed and fixed already.
But the fix is hard to access for some people; and it's a extra step you
need to know about. All we'd need to do is to get this and similar
*small* updates into a updated install iso image  and we'd make a lot
people happy that currently have a hard time installing Fedora.
