This live CD is built using a source code based on the pilgrim project.
This is an open project and participation is encouraged and appreciated.
See these documents on how to get involved hacking on the code and what
it’s all about

Participate on the Fedora Live CD mailing list and the Wiki page to make
the Fedora live CD experience even better

The livecd-tools and fedora-livecd packages, which is required to
rebuild the live CD, have just been submitted to Fedora Extras, see

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=220635
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=220637

for details. Until these packages are in Extras, you can grab source and
binary i386 packages from here

and start cranking out your own live CD’s.

Thanks and a merry Christmas break to everyone!

I have a feeling there will be quite a few people interested in hacking this live cd. It also presents an opportunity to spread exposure of Fedora to those unwilling or unable to wipe their proprietary os to give Fedora a spin.
