To be honest I have mixed feelings about that, from one point of view I understand that rebuilding now and updating installers is something which takes time and resources, but from another point of view think about commercial customers (like myself) which have expectations and plans and now I have to spend own time and resources to fix something which is a deployment bug actually, as I have to support in a system I deliver RH6 and Ubuntu 16.

I am not really to blame, just to say that its not really only about release model, but about people who are using it and in certain way pay the bill.
