Why would you compile anything?  The DVD installation set is nothing
more than a pungi compose using a certain kickstart file.  No magic
there.

They are reproducible for that day.  All that Alpha, Beta, and PR
really are is composes from rawhide on a given day.  Same with the
"non-public" RC releases - the exact reason that they're not public is
they'd be obsolete the next day.   I tend to make DVD sets fairly
often (just ask Jesse and the number of pungi/anaconda/yum bugs I hit
:) ).
