Thanks for the support.

I've since moved my plan to do a remix for F-12 instead and reconsider
it again for F-13. The core of moblin would still be in Fedora anyway
for people to install as they see fit and the advantage of the respin
is that I can patch up xulrunner and hence include a working browser.
Either way I'm just continuing on working towards it to see where I
can get to. Its still somewhat of a moving target  as they've just
split out one of the packages into a number of smaller ones.

Peter
