AIUI, the intent was to have (new) users install from a Live CD and use
Pirut to install "the rest" from the Internet.  I agree that such reasoning
is incomplete, as the Live CD can't do upgrades, yum upgrades are not
supported, and some machines with CD drives don't have a fast -- or any --
Internet connection.  While I think that omitting a full CD installer is a
mistake, I don't need it; I don't really even need to burn the DVD though I
do, as a hard disk install is faster and easier for me.  File a bug!
Complaints here fall on irrelevent ears.
