Fedora Core 5 Re-Spin 20060523 Released
Posted on: 06/01/2006 08:20 PM

The Fedora Core 5 Re-Spins from Fedora Unity have been released.

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of DVD ISO Re-Spins of Fedora Core 5. These ISOs are based upon Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of May 23rd, 2006. They are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures as of Wednesday, May 31st, 2006 via BitTorrent. The x86_64 Re-Spin is currently available for testing only.

The Fedora Unity Project has been created by concerned peers in the Fedora Community to bring quality solutions to the Community. These are members of the Community who want to see the best solutions find their way into the hands of the Community. Members include site maintainers, Fedora Project contributors and interested users.

The Re-Spin task has been taken up by Fedora Unity to provide the Community with the chance to install Fedora Core with recent updates, which might otherwise be several hundred megabytes of downloads, already included. This is a Community project, for the Community, by the Community. You can contribute to the Community by seeding the torrent after your download has completed or by joining the test process.

The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and release often, with new Re-Spins provided early each month during the life of each Fedora Core release until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy. Early snapshots will be taken mid-month to start testing. Final snapshots will be taken about a week before the release. All released ISO images are tested using a 15-point test matrix to ensure the quality that the Fedora community expects. If you are interested in helping with the testing or seeding efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team. Contact information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/.
