But those are afaics the ones that people are interested it. I'd even
assume those where meant when we people mentioned "Fedora 8.5" or "Not
all fixes, but just the installer specific ones would be enough." --
"install specific ones" is likely not anaconda for everyone ;)

I do as well, but seems with a bit of support from Fedora their stuff
could be a lot better and easier to build:

Further: I think Fedora as a whole should be more flexible and have a
experimental area; a place within the project where stuff like the
respins can be developed and tested and easily become official once we
see if it works.
