So you would limit patches to only those required to make anaconda
continue to build and run on respins?  That is, no patches to fix
partitioning errors, package selection errors, etc.?

I'm fine with that.  It would just need to be explained somewhere public
to set expectations.

Ideally, we'd keep the number of non-master patches to a minimum.  We'll
see how that plays out.

Sounds reasonable.  Perhaps James has further thoughts on this portion.
