How this bug can come out of its dead-end? Any suggestions?!

Hi all,
There is a bug in Fedora package management since FC4 (except Fedora 8) 
that potentially affects ALL of the Fedora installation DVD users 
(people who are not annoyed by this bug will probably find other 
alternatives more suitable (e.g. Live CD install, Network install or the 
new BFO if I spell correctly!)). The reason that this bug is still open 
is not technical, but almost completely political. And as I see it in 
the current state, it is not going to be fixed anytime soon.

The mentioned bug is this one: (installation media 
support in PackageKit).

While a user can create a repo file for the DVD's mount point and go 
with it, but that is not acceptable for a new user to live with such a 

It is really annoying that the installation DVD is useless for an 
ordinary user after installation. And this is really unfortunate that 
this bug is still open because of such small issues.

I hope that somebody could suggest something which can make some 
progress in this area.

Good luck,
