I still think that Fedora-unity re-spins which are the official img with 
updates should be on the front
with the official ones ( and I feel even more strongly about this issue 
should replace the official ones ).
If users would have downloaded the FC6 respins instead of the "original 
cant be *touch* updated nor fixed after the release"
ones would have saved alot of trouble ( I586 issue ).

Custom spins like Daves spins or Mary's spins can be under
