Fedora Core 5 Re-Spin 20060818 Released

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new DVD ISO Re-Spins of Fedora Core 5. These Re-Spin ISOs are based upon Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of August 18th, 2006. The ISO images are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures via BitTorrent starting Monday, August 28th, 2006.

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 up to 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. New Re-Spins are provided early each month during the life of a Fedora Core release, until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy. Early snapshots are taken mid-month to start testing. Final snapshots are taken about a week before the release. All released ISO images are tested using a 15-point test matrix to ensure the quality 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
