Yest, there will be an option to just show the mirror list or something
very similar to what we currently have, not only for cases like yours,
in which people already know what they want, but to have as a fall back
in case no javascript is enabled in the client browser.

Probably the lack of attention that is given to spins in current fp.o is
what makes us think that spins are passing unnoticed.

´╗┐In the case of Get Fedora as for every installation media i want the
spins to have a short description so people get to know what they are.

Also I'll be working on the spins layout as i said in the meeting,
although you said something about letting the owners of each spin
control the content/info about their releases. So, i dont know what you
people think about that but i cant get off the idea of making something
like a CMS with a default template in which only content and images
would be customized by every spin owner, who might have something like
an "administrator" panel to work on it.

Anyway thats just an idea.
