The Fedora Unity project has pushed out re-spins of Fedora Core 6 Zod. These re-spins are ISOs of Fedora Core 6, but with all available official Core 6 updates as of January 11, 2007. At this time, re-spins of the x86 and x86_64 versions are available, while the PowerPC version will follow in the next few days. Unlike past Fedora Unity spins created using Homebrew, this is the first spin to use Pungi (which is what will be used for Fedora 7). No HTTP/FTP mirrors are available at this time, with Bit Torrent being the primary method for download. More information and the torrents can be found at Fedora Unity.
