6 Time and sanity. Sure, it can be built pretty quickly, but there's a bit of
7 testing that needs to go into it before it can be released to the mirrors.
8 Release time is hectic enough, and you want us (releng) to do it more often than
9 bi-annually?
11 Also, what's the point? Everything you use to install from the minimal is
12 fetched from the internet. The only thing that an updated minimal would give us
13 is a slightly more hardware support during the install.
