I guess the main question is "is the effort that it would take to
produce a new ISO worth the bug fixes that would get in, and the
potential new bugs that might emerge."

Jesse and Thomas Chung think no.  I see that others think yes.  I'm
inclined to go with Jesse and Thomas's opinions on this, since Jesse
feels most of the rel-eng pain and Thomas feels most of the "end user
getting one of those discs" pain.

If their opinions change before Monday, then so be it.  Otherwise, I
guess I'll just use the GOLD ISOs and that will be that.

I still think it was right to ask the quesiton, though.

FWIW, so do I. I'm not sure what the Fedora Unity folks are up to these days - the website looks a touch stagnant - but perhaps re-spins with updates can always be done should there be the need for them as we now know. I'd vote for shipping gold.
