There was a little inconsistency between the Fedora and Everything
repositories requiring a last minute respin, but the Fedora 17 GA
release for the IBM System z is finally here. This time again a bit
closer the primary when we count the number of available packages.

The links to the actual release are here:



and obviously on all sites that mirror the secondary arch content and we
still have few :-)

The first directory contains the normal installation trees as well as
one DVD ISO with the complete release.

Everything as usual contains, well, everything. :)

Additional information about known issues, the current progress and
state for future release, where and how the team can be reached and just
anything else IBM System z on Fedora related can be found here:


For architecture specific release notes, please read it as there are
again changes in the installation process. It's a wiki so don't hesitate
to add your knowledge there.
