You'll still need to host all the srpms you use in your initial binary release. After that, if you're just relying upon Fedora for the updates, since Fedora handles the binary and the source for those you don't have to worry. You just have to worry about updates to the additional packages you put in your spin. You have to make sure that the source rpms used to create your Live image stay around for as long as your Live image is available for download. This may be longer than Fedora keeps those srpms around. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
