Nothing preventing people to setup up Fedora Extras ISO's.



No no. We are talking about "single CD" installers. People believe three or four CDs is a lot...

The installer itself is getting the capability to read repository meta data. So inspite of a potential single CD release, other repository meta data can be used during installation. Fedora Extras ISO images could be useful for other scenarios too. Someone interested should step up to do the required work.
