Emergency announcement: RC1 DVD looks pretty much DOA, huge chunks of 
packages are missing from it again. We're not entirely sure why. I doubt 
you can get a usable install from it, though, by the looks of the 
package list. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856036 . I 
don't know how netinst will behave, whether it'll pull the right 
packages or not.
