This is what you see when you mount the image:

$ ls Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/*
Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/boot.catalog

Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/boot:
grub

Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/Gnome:
EFI  GPL  isolinux  LiveOS

Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/KDE:
EFI  GPL  isolinux  LiveOS

Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/LXDE:
EFI  GPL  isolinux  LiveOS

Fedora-13-i686-Live-multi/XFCE:
EFI  GPL  isolinux  LiveOS

As you can see it's just the official spins, a boot menu and a copy of
the GPL for every spin.

Spot already pointed out that this would qualify as "new combination of
unmodified Fedora software" and thus need the boards approval. [1]

Can you please put this on the board agenda for the next meeting, as we
need to have the approval ASAP.

Regards,
Christoph

P.S.: It really is a pitty that the trac instance is closed for mortal
users like me, even for FESCo members. Is there a documented workflow to
bring something up the board's attention to it ends up on the meeting
agenda.
