I am all for it.
So, who wants to try out some experimental installer images?

I'm planning to build some F16Alpha images (and maybe respin F15 images)
using the treebuilder branch of lorax. This branch builds installer
images that are split into 2 parts (initrd.img and install.img), like
F14 and earlier. It also uses dracut for the initrd.img, so we no longer
have to maintain the old custom 'loader' initrd.img (which was the real
goal of the change in F15).

Memory requirements should be greatly reduced from the standard F15
images (and somewhat lower than F14) - but we'll need to make new
anaconda builds to prove that, since the memory check prevents us from
running on systems with<768MB RAM. There's a lot of other changes too,
which is why I want some help with testing.

So:
1) If I can get images built locally, how should I build them for test
consumption? (build in chroot/mock? what's the standard kickstart /
pungi invocation? is there a standard build machine for test images?)
2) If I can get them build, where do I put the images where people can
find them?

If these are live images I'm inn if I can sneak in a proof of concept package into one of those builds

It's an package that replaces the legacy sysv init script with native systemd units and contains some boot up tweaking which should decrease the boot up time for live images and since I need to test if changes work correctly after install and or persistant storage usage it's no additional work for me.

I'll will need a couple of hours max to create the package for the live gnome desktop image along with cleaning up the current ks script for the live desktop.
