How about just getting the Yast Product Creator to the point where one can easily "re-spin" installation medium with the updated packages?
I think we can already do this with the build service. At least, home:coolo:LiveCD makes me believe this.
The build service is a horrible option for Joe User to attempt to create their own "updated" installation medium. It's not layman friendly, installing off live medium doesn't work on but the most basic of setups, adds additional unnecessary load the the build service, doesn't allow for 3rd party "morally gray" packages, requires a complete redownload of medium which is costly to some or just not feasible because they do not have high speed net, etc. Put the ability back into the average users. Give them the capability with their local existing tools that they have on their machines without having to read a thousand man pages to figure out how to pull such an endeavor off. Product creator should have the ability to do this with some refinement .
