Or was this just a pr c...

Remix implies that you take the package set and do something
interesting with it, not just add a bunch of stuff from outside
Fedora.  Furthermore, regardless of location, Fedora isn't interested
in patent encumbered software, as it's not free for /everybody/.  It's
entirely uninteresting to promote such a thing.

The Fedora-unity re-spins could be posted on fedoraprojects.org
along with the official img right?

They just contain updates and nothing outside the fedora repo tree.
( And their FC6 respin release didn't contain the whole FC6 I586 issue that slipped through QA )

And I think that Max Spevack ( or any Red Hat/Fedora offical )
should contact them and offer them to post their images along with the official ones.

That alone would be progress in the right direction ( and save users bandwith and long update time )

Best regards
