getting the F10 respin with "jigdo" -- the short version



  as someone who once wrote a tutorial on how to grab a fedora respin
with "jigdo", for people who just want the instructions, here's what
seems to still work.  (it's running as we speak, so i'm assuming it
still works as it used to.)

  * find original F10 DVD
  * place in drive, where it should be mounted under /media

  # yum install jigdo  (if you haven't already)

  $ jigdo-lite http://jigdo.fedoraunity.org/templates/20090210/Fedora-Unity-20090210-10.jigdo

     ?  7       (i386 DVD, or pick whatever number is appropriate)
     ? /media   (where to look for reusable rpm files)

  at this point, wait a bit for the (in this case) 282M template file
to download, at which point jigdo-lite will scan /media to see how
many rpm files it can reuse.  for this DVD, apparently, i can reuse
1537 out of 2302 files.  not bad.

  now go for coffee.  does that sound about right?
