It was a combination of a drop in hardware that has CD only drives (and still powerful enough to run Fedora), the increase in QA targets with the introduction of all the Live spins and there was potential for multiple choose your own adventure spins, which doing CD variants of all of those again increases the compose times, the QA targets, the increased duplication of content we're asking mirrors to handle, the increase in time it would take to rsync those bits around, and it was an experiment. We at a project level didn't see a whole lot of yelling and screaming about missing CD images so we did it again with F8, but late in F8 the noise swell has reached something of a critical mass, add to that we're only doing one choose your own adventure set so a matching CD set just for that isn't too unreasonable. Unfortunately it's way too late for F8 to re-introduce another install method and jump the size of the tree by a good chunk. We'll likely introduce CDs to complement the Fedora DVD install with the Alpha (should we go the Alpha/Beta/RC/Final route) of F9. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
