We won't have downloads from the respins.org server (at least not at the 
start).  I can't afford to allocate that much bandwidth and storage 
space right off the bat.

However, any community member can create a blog on the site with info on 
kickstart files they may have... and the download locations.  Heck, if 
you have something general, that doesn't need a whole write up, just 
send me the link and I'll add it.

But users will get the most out of a link to the Fedora wiki if someone 
makes a few points about why it's helpful, or something else that can be 
learned from wiki knowledge.  As in, Hey you'll need to do all 5 steps, 
here's the order and the detailed instructions are at link1, link2, 
link3, etc.

This is what the site is meant to do.  Users who create and then talk 
about their creations all while creating buzz for Fedora and spreading 
it farther and wider than we have in the past.

Wouldn't it be cool if one of the Free Media discs spawned a bunch of 
Respins that would then create more sponsorships?

We will grab anything we can download and add it to the On-Disk.com 
catalog with the Free Media Sponsorship attached.  And given what we 
already know about percentages, some of the respins will be ordered from 
On-Disk.com.  (others will be directly downloaded)

Fedora is cool and all, but once you've already got it, you don't really 
need another disc.  With F7 a whole new world opens up with all sorts of 
fun things you may want to try... The Live CD/DVD function makes it 
almost like looking over the shoulder of users around the world to see 
what their ideal Fedora looks like and then being given permission to 
use their machine to explore.

ps, sorry about my connection at the meeting last night.  I'm not quite 
sure why I kept getting the boot.
