The intent was to leave the definition of 'spin' concept as broad as possible. I don't think there is anything in the base proposal which raises the bar higher for installation media spins than for live images.

Well, should Unity remain to be able to release Re-Spins the way they do then we'll maybe need an exemption to a couple of rules set forth in the proposal;

On the Release Selection process:

Spin concepts:

- "can be proposed to Release Engineering for inclusion in the next Fedora release"

Unity Re-Spins tend to not align with Fedora releases.

- "are built as part of the next Fedora release cycle"

Same here.

On the role of Release Engineering:

- "reviews each proposed spin for release and does the final spin image composing for all released spins and update spins as they appear in the torrent server and mirrors"

The type of configuration used by the tools currently used by Release Engineering do not accept the kind of configuration a Re-Spin might need. Nor, judging from the comments on a proposal a long time ago, does upstream for those tools accept the type of configuration it might take to compose a Re-Spin with, given that -supposedly- it would not be reproducible.

Hence, during the compose process manual intervention might be required. Insert here a reminder of the reproducibility argument used earlier.

Other then the above if all it applies to is Installation and Live Spins to-be-released-by-the-Fedora-Project-proper, I fully agree with the proposal. I sure hope though, should this proposal be accepted, it won't be held against us all of a sudden.
