  * Enable "live" upgrades to be done better

You mean with yum? Or with Live-CDs?

I assume the further; gets a "+1" from me.

Either or both. There is ongoing discussion about mashing up Anaconda as a step in between, hook it up with Pup and do something close to a live upgrade. One way or the other easy we should make this process more easy.

  * Get yum-presto up and running by default

Well, I'm not sure it's a big help for dist-upgrades. Where to create
the binary-data-diff from? From F(relase-1) or F((relase-1)+updates at
relase time)?

I haven't thought about this much yet. Just something to consider.

  * Look into integrating jidgo.

Well, where is the benefit as long as we don't ship Fedora spin CD's?

One reason we don't provide CD's is because mirrors will push back. If jidgo is integrated we can start providing CD's I think but I don't feel adding more and more variants to the default Fedora release is a good thing and hence live upgrades are a much better solution both for us and our end users.
