This is the test list, making any but 16 or Rawhide off topic, right?

No packages have been installed. That happens after proceeding past the 
partitioning step, which only begins after examination of devices is 
complete. How does one go about determining the involved versions of packages 
not yet installed? The only one I know about was the Anaconda 16.13 
announcement at initialization, which I supposed was the only available one 
for devel packages.

I did not paste in the URL they came from,, thinking readers of this list would 
find adequate the pasted in mirror subdir, 20770721, the newest available. 
Maybe that's the problem, mixing Rawhide & 16, which problem I frequently get 
into because isolinux/ is nearly always missing from the standard mirrors 
where the rest of the devel version files can be found and used for HTTP 
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
