why not just download the respin over torrent?

  while that is *a* solution, it still requires more bandwidth than
jigdo should use.  i'm just saying that, if fedora proposes a
particular download technique, it should at least work.

p.s.  for some corporate environments (like mine), jigdo is acceptable
through the corporate firewall, while bittorrent isn't.  so i don't
have that choice.

well my solution was to setup a local repo using the F10 dvd as a source, then use revisor with a modified <arch>.conf file with the local repo having priority over everything but updates, and a kickstart set for whatever arch your building for. this way you only download the updated packages and make the install media for the arch of your choice
