Or, Fedora could do a gold release (i.e. released on the release day) and then
have "unofficial" weekly install snapshots, done automatically and not passed
through any sort of testing, based on current RPMS, so that all you need to do
is download that current install ISO and you're off. If it works, OK, if it
doesn't, you can always go to the gold release that's been tested and then apply
updates.
