Fedora Unity releases updated Fedora Core 6 Re-Spins.

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new ISO 
Re-Spins (DVD and CD Sets) of Fedora Core 6.  These Re-Spin ISOs are 
based on Fedora Core 6 and all updates released as of January 11th, 
2007.  The ISO images are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures 
via BitTorrent starting Thursday, January 18th, 2007.  PPC images will 
follow within the next 5 days, but will have had only limited testing.

This release was delayed while waiting for fixes to known issues with 
Fedora Core 6[1] as well as the creation of a new tool for composing 
Re-Spins.  Previous releases were built with a homebrew script.  This 
release was built with the new tool called Pungi[2], developed by Jesse 
Keating, a leading community member and Fedora Release Engineer, with 
community input.  This tool will be used in future official Fedora 
releases and for Fedora Unity Re-Spins.  We have joined in this effort 
to bring a full featured tool to the Fedora community, enabling anyone 
to build Re-Spins and Live-Spins now and in the future.

The Fedora Unity Project was created by concerned peers in the Fedora 
community to bring quality solutions to the community.  Project members 
want to see the best solutions find their way into the hands of the 
community.  Members include site maintainers, Fedora Project 
contributors and interested users.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with 
the chance to install Fedora Core with recent updates already included. 
  These updates might otherwise comprise more than 700MiB of downloads 
for a default install.  This is a community project, for and by the 
community.  You can contribute to the community by seeding the torrent 
after your download has completed, or by joining the test process.

The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and often.  We hope to 
provide new Re-Spins each month during the life of a Fedora Core 
release.  We take early snapshots at mid-month to start testing, and 
final snapshots about a week before the release.  We test all released 
ISO images using a test matrix to ensure the quality the Fedora 
community expects.  If you are interested in helping with the testing or 
pre-seeding efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team.  Contact 
information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/.
