Re: Fedora 7 media sets

However, this means that many users will have to rely on the mercy of some volunteers who might step up or not, and they will be essentially cut off from official media supply. This is a big penalty and really prone of driving users away from the distribution.

They could do it themselves instead of being in the "mercy" of volunteers. Enabling everyone to able to customize their own deployment is a very big benefit.

The example of "Fedora Unity" already shows that your suggestion is far fetched and unrealistic. I haven't found a single site yet which is mirroring the respun images.

Do you have any suggestions?
