Nope. We have so many enhancement requests at this moment, that we (the
two of us), cannot just code and release anything anymore. We're getting
a little closer to releasing a bug-fixed 2.0 version right now, we will
then start adding features once more.

Check http://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/revisor/report/9 for all
our tickets. -49 open.

True, although our scope is not beyond any RPM/YUM driven systems.
Neither is livecd-tool's or pungi's, afaik. It doesn't mean we are blind
to whatever else is out there, though. A web-interface driven model
would certainly be the best solution to enable non-RPM/YUM driven
distros to also do respins, I think we all agree on that.

Basically a web-interface driven model of doing respins is going to
allow the user to do his own respins rather then download any of the
other respins anyone else has done. For starters, we could also host
some of the respins that are still made of genuine Fedora packages. A
web-interface driven model at this point is... going to take a while. If
anyone is willing to contribute... ;-)

Kind regards,
