I am a newcomer to the free media program, since December 2008. I am
here to help. At this point I have more questions than opinions. Sure
there are some historical background that is unknown for me. I think
it is better to ask early than to complain later. I will love to be
able to distribute media up-to-date, to save people (me included) from
having to download 500+ Mb to update a fresh install. Specially where
internet connections does not help much to speed update.

 It is Unity re-spin official fedora?

Unity re-spin is available using jigdo, or at least it seems to be.
Why there is no jigdo for official media?

Again, maybe there is a good answer to those questions, but it is
unknown to me (most likely because I am a newcomer). One of my
concern, representing fedora to the public, is to give the proper
response. Providing official media is one of those proper responses.

Again I will like to continue to help the free-media program. I am
just asking to obtain a better understanding. Hope, that I stir debate
a bit and help a better solution for the free-media program.

Best regards
