Sigh, I found a minor setback. We agreed Everything netinst is the
best candidate for release blocking as an optical medium, but today I
found out Everything netinst is marked as *not* release blocking at
all . Which some somewhat funny, because I always considered it as
such (and I think more of us did), and this is quite a surprise for
me. And if we don't block on it, we can't obviously block on it when
it's burned to a spinning disc.
One solution here is to make Everything netinst release blocking.
There is a good use case for that, it's the most universal install
medium we have (you can install anything from it). A different
solution is to mark e.g. Server netinst as blocking for optical
media, but that will cover only Server (so no Workstation or KDE
support in case optical boot is really broken).
+1 for that. I believe the sticking point before has been the question
of what team/WG/SIG/whatever is 'responsible' for the image, but that
seems a kind of overly-theoretical concern.
