Anaconda is considered a critical package and I believe that also makes
it dependencies critical packages. Eventually these packages are all
supposed to be handled more carefully so that rawhide is very likely
to be installable, bootable and updatable at any point in time.

There was also a separate initiative to make the last know good rawhide
available when rawhide does have critical breakage. That proposal doesn't
seem to have been implemented as described, but may be going on in some
form.
