[Test-Announce] livecd-tools testing request

Hey, folks. There's a new livecd-tools build which needs testing:


It should fix two bugs I came across in Alpha testing:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=796419 - "F17 Alpha RC4 DVD
written to USB with livecd-iso-to-disk --efi does not boot"

Also the bug where, if you write a DVD ISO to USB stick with l-i-t-d,
only the anaconda stuff gets written, not the packages - so the stick is
effectively just a boot.iso, you need another source of packages. That
one I didn't file yet, but it should be fixed.

bcl says it's a fairly big change, so he wants it to get some testing
before applying the change to f15 and f16. please test whatever you
usually use livecd-iso-to-disk for and make sure it didn't break
anything. Ideally we should re-run all the USB validation tests that use
anything from livecd-tools - the 'USB Stick' section on the installation
matrix - and make sure nothing got worse, at least. If it all goes well,
file positive karma. thanks! it'd be great to get this approved and
f15/f16 builds done ASAP so as to help people get Alpha written.
