The Fedora-unity re-spins could be posted on fedoraprojects.org
along with the official img right?

They just contain updates and nothing outside the fedora repo tree.
( And their FC6 respin release didn't contain the whole FC6 I586 issue 
that slipped through QA )

And I think that Max Spevack ( or any Red Hat/Fedora offical )
should contact them and offer them to post their images along with the 
official ones.

That alone would be progress in the right direction ( and save users 
bandwith and long update time )
