That's not the current policy, as was clearly explained. Sufficiently
nasty bugs have updates.img files made available. This is practically
about as good as releasing an updated boot.iso; probably anyone who'd
figure out to look for and use an updated boot.iso is capable of using
an updates.img instead, and anyone who wouldn't manage to use an
updates.img probably wouldn't manage to use a boot.iso either.
