The outcome seems to be we should block on Workstation Live and Everything
netinst. Stephen confirmed his "remote DVD drive" installation was not
affected by the firmware issue causing some optical disks failing to boot.
Also just testing one Live and one netinst should give us a high probability
to detect all such issues, because all the Live and DVD+netinst images are
created the same way. I'll again propose a criterion adjustment on the test
Thanks everyone for providing valuable feedback.
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).
