     The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new 
ISO Re-Spins of Fedora 12.

       These Re-Spin ISOs are based on the officially released Fedora 12 
installation media and include all updates released as of March 3, 2010. 
The ISO images are available for i386, x86_64, architectures via Jigdo 
or Torrent starting Thursday, March 19th, 2010. Despite problems in this 
Re-Spin we, Fedora Unity, have decided to release this Re-Spin with the 
following side-note:

          *** We regrettably release this as a DVD only Re-Spin due to 
issues we found while testing the CD images. We are working hard to fix 
these issues, the CD images will be in future releases. ***

       Testing Results

       A full test matrix can be found at our Test Matrix. 

       Please Notice the missing packages stated in the Gold vs Re-Spin 
Comments. Most of these are caused by packages being replaced or no 
longer needed by other packages over the lifespan of the release, some 
are missing because of changes to comps.xml.

       We would like to give a special thanks to the following for 
testing this Re-Spin:
