Fixing livecd ISO labels (bz 1145264)

Hi all,

The ISO volume ID for the Fedora 21 workstation livecd is 
'Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-2', which doesn't actually say 21 in it, and 
libosinfo can't use it to detect the fedora version for boxes/virt-manager.

Koji is responsible for generating the volume ID, and there's a bug filed:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1145264

I also sent a (untested) koji patch to buildsys list:

https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/buildsys/2014-October/004411.html

However neither have received a response, so I'm reaching out here.

If this isn't fixed before F21 GA, we are stuck with the crappy volume ID 
forever and tools that are depending on it are in a tough spot. Is there any 
process to escalate this and get the fix deployed to infrastructure? (FWIW 
I've just proposed the bug as a freeze exception, but presumably it will take 
more coordination that that)

Thanks,
Cole
