Fedora Unity releases Fedora Core 5 Live-Spin ISO images.

Official Fedora Live images are something we all have been looking 
forward to seeing in the Fedora Community.  Kadischi will be the tool to 
create such live images.  Fedora Unity has recently joined forces with 
Kadischi to help provide testing and to release live images which we are 
calling "Live-Spins."

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of a new 
Live-Spin CD and DVD ISO image of Fedora Core 5.  These Live-Spin ISOs 
are based on Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of August 21st, 
2006.  They are available for the i386 architecture via BitTorrent 
starting Monday, August 28th, 2006 via BitTorrent.

The Fedora Core 5 CD image features a 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 kernel and GNOME 
2.14.1, along with applications such as xchat, gftp, OpenOffice.org 
2.0.3, and other utilities.  The DVD image includes roughly "everything 
but the kitchen sink."

Also available at this time are "pristine" FC6T2 Live ISO images from 
the initial FC6T2 release.

The Fedora Unity Project was created by concerned peers in the Fedora 
Community to bring quality solutions to the Community.  Project members 
want to see the best solutions find their way into the hands of the 
Community. Members include site maintainers, Fedora Project contributors 
and interested users.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Live-Spin task to provide the Community 
with the chance to test Fedora Core with recent updates in a Live Media 
environment.  This is a Community project, for the Community and by the 
Community.  You can contribute to the Community by seeding the torrent 
after your download has completed or by joining the test process.

The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and release often. New 
Live-Spins are provided early each month during the life of each Fedora 
Core release until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy.  Early 
snapshots are taken mid-month to start testing.  Final snapshots will be 
taken about a week before the release.  All released ISO images are 
tested to ensure the quality that the Fedora community expects.  If you 
are interested in helping with the testing or seeding efforts, please 
contact the Fedora Unity team.  Contact information is available at
