Well, should Unity remain to be able to release Re-Spins the way they do
then we'll maybe need an exemption to a couple of rules set forth in the
On the Release Selection process:
- "can be proposed to Release Engineering for inclusion in the next
Unity Re-Spins tend to not align with Fedora releases.
- "are built as part of the next Fedora release cycle"
On the role of Release Engineering:
- "reviews each proposed spin for release and does the final spin image
composing for all released spins and update spins as they appear in the
torrent server and mirrors"
The type of configuration used by the tools currently used by Release
Engineering do not accept the kind of configuration a Re-Spin might
need. Nor, judging from the comments on a proposal a long time ago, does
upstream for those tools accept the type of configuration it might take
to compose a Re-Spin with, given that -supposedly- it would not be
Hence, during the compose process manual intervention might be required.
Insert here a reminder of the reproducibility argument used earlier.
Other then the above if all it applies to is Installation and Live Spins
