	I've set jigdo going on the Fedora Unity F8 respin.  Does it do its
scan before or after downloading the template?  After the dial-up
connection dropped out half way through downloading the .template file,
I gave it the ultimate answer (42) to continue, but it aborted, amongst
other things saying that /media/dvd was skipped.  It restarted from
where it left off, but if it won't scan the original media, then will it
try to download the whole iso after the .template file?
