The problem here is when do you stop generating new media to fix bugs in

What determines if an installer bug gets a fix in F-11 vs. not?

It's a gigantic waste of time for the installer team to release updates to
F-11's installer.  We can address those bugs in rawhide and have them
fixed in
the next stable release.

Can you push the fixes as updates for Anaconda in Fedora 11? Fedora
Unity isn't the only one doing updated images. It is increasingly
becoming useful to have updated Anaconda packages available within the
official repository as updates. If the Anaconda team doesn't want to do
it, hand over that work to Jeroen van Meeuwen. He has already
volunteered to take care of it and since he is doing it anyway for the
unity images, his work could benefit more people. The only thing you got
to do is give him commit access.

I've been doing that for Jeroen.  He's submitting patchsets for review and
I've built at least a few anaconda updates for him.  He is currently testing
updates for F-11 and when that's ready, he'll submit the patches for review
for anaconda and we can do an update.
