Those are users, not the developers.  This is not dissent among
developers, it's indecision among users.

You were arguing against the one proposal I've seen to help make releases
easier to make faster without compromising quality in another thread, but
you haven't yet given a reason why the change is bad and you haven't
addressed why some of us believe the changes are good, only that in your
mind the changes aren't going to solve the whole problem.  The parts of
the problem it doesn't solve seem not to be archive related.

Not to mix threads but I can see a problem it doesn't address and that's
the need to keep source CD images at least around for 3 years or so.

NO ONE expects the Spanish Inquisition!
