Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This

Better do it as early as possible, to have some media spread the word.

Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2007-10-03 14:08:52 UTC
And we missed it for F8 too :/

This is being named 'netinst.iso' and put in the isos/ dir.  In images/ it'll
continue to have 'boot.iso' as the name for legacy reasons, but it does have
stage2 and will be suitable for rescue as well as installing.

Awesome, thanks Jesse. We can blog about it to spread the word.
