Anaconda is a major componenet in getting the system installed, it

When we get to a release, I agree. But unfortunately, we need a
development environment too. And since we depend on a whole system,
that environment is rawhide. This is part of why, in pre-Fedora days,
rawhide trees weren't even an attempt at being installable.
I uderstand that there is major work being done on it now, and I
that the anaconda folks are reading the fedora-test-list where I will be
posting the results of my continuing attempts to do installs of rawhide.
We're reading, but unfortunately, the mail doesn't do a great deal to
help. Let me outline the situation of how things generally work:
* rawhide compose starts at 5 am, generally the tree is ready or close
to it by the time we get into the office
* sync up to newer tree, get to work on fixing stuff that's broken and
adding the new stuff. test as much as is possible with RHupdates
* end of the day rolls around, build a new anaconda package
* go home, rest :)
* read mail/bugzilla about stuff that was fixed earlier in the day :-/
* ... continued into the next morning.
Not sure how to improve things while still being able to keep moving.
Definitely up for suggestions on ways to help the problem.
