together a Fedora release, how it was done for F11 and also some of the
tools, which he helped create which are used to put together the Fedora
distribution. He talks about Pungi [https://fedorahosted.org/pungi/
] which are tools used to compose
the Fedora tree and create a custom remix or re-spin,
He also talks about some of the changes which have taken place under

Jesse takes us
on a whirlwind tour of some of the greatest enhancements we can look
forward to in F11, including changes to PackageKit

fingerprint support for authentication and what we can look forward
to in the future releases of Fedora.

upcoming release in the days to come. Fedora 11 is sure to prove a
highly innovative and technology advanced release.
Fedora 11. Get ready. There's reason to be excited!
