Fedora Core 6 (Zod) Re-Spins from Fedora Unity
Posted on: 01/20/2007 03:58 PM

Fedora Unity releases updated Fedora Core 6 Re-Spins.

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new ISO Re-Spins (DVD and CD Sets) of Fedora Core 6. These Re-Spin ISOs are based on Fedora Core 6 and all updates released as of January 11th, 2007. The ISO images are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures via BitTorrent starting Thursday, January 18th, 2007. PPC images will follow within the next 5 days, but will have had only limited testing.

This release was delayed while waiting for fixes to known issues with Fedora Core 6[1] as well as the creation of a new tool for composing Re-Spins. Previous releases were built with a homebrew script. This release was built with the new tool called Pungi[2], developed by Jesse Keating, a leading community member and Fedora Release Engineer, with community input. This tool will be used in future official Fedora releases and for Fedora Unity Re-Spins. We have joined in this effort to bring a full featured tool to the Fedora community, enabling anyone to build Re-Spins and Live-Spins now and in the future.

The Fedora Unity Project was created by concerned peers in the Fedora community to bring quality solutions to the community. Project members 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.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with the chance to install Fedora Core with recent updates already included. These updates might otherwise comprise more than 700MiB of downloads for a default install. This is a community project, for and 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 often. We hope to provide new Re-Spins each month during the life of a Fedora Core release. We take early snapshots at mid-month to start testing, and final snapshots about a week before the release. We test all released ISO images using a test matrix to ensure the quality the Fedora community expects. If you are interested in helping with the testing or pre-seeding efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team. Contact information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/.
