How so?  There seems to be a problem with the comps.xml file, which omits
20 packages, some of which are needed.  So far no one has addressed my
questions, including that one.  Will there be other problems?

Should those who needs F7 CDs install F7 first?  I don't suppose that's
much more a slap in the face than having to use Pungi to create the images
in the first place.

Yes, please do!  Many people who need to install from CDs will thank you
for that!
