It was a long time since the last message in this change proposal.

Recently I was working to reduce the impact of the increased compression ratio on the installation image size for Fedora. I have achieved outstanding results -- working proof of concept. With the following change: https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/2292 , not only the higher compression does not impact the installation time. In certain cases, the installation time is even reduced. This is because of the fact the filesystem internal structure aware process is used to install the system from the SquashFS. The new process also allows for taking advantage of the multi-core architecture of the system during installation -- does the decompression on multiple processors in parallel.

This sounds very good. Thanks for working on this.
