Creating Re-Spins with Revisor

Creating re-spins has never been this easy. Of course we had pungi and livecd-tools to which we had added this GUI thing in Revisor, but since I've re-enabled the CLI mode in Revisor, re-spins go even easier and quicker by just copying these lines:

i386 Fedora 7 DVD:

revisor --cli --model=f7-i386 --dvd \

i386 Fedora 7 CD Set:

revisor --cli --model=f7-i386 --cd \

x86_64 Fedora 7 DVD:
revisor --cli --model=f7-x86_64 --dvd \

x86_64 Fedora 7 CD Set:

revisor --cli --model=f7-x86_64 --cd \

And if you want both CDs and DVDs, just append another command line switch! Isn't that just *amazing*?

I'm gonna add to allow more-then-one model from the CLI... Maybe it's useless, but it'll look awesome.

Revisor Enabling Translations

Revisor, having released it's final 2.0.3 version ( is now in updates-testing), hopefully fixing any bugs in the feature set we had up and until now, has now moved to add all kinds of features to finally, at some point, become available to you in the 2.0.4.x version set.

We have not yet listed our priorities as to what feature we add first, but two things that were not in Revisor yet have always been quite important to Fedora; localization and accessibility.

I'm glad to announce that we've enabled Revisor to be fully localized, with help of Dimitris Glezos (Fedora l10n Team, helped me getting my ducks in a row) and Piotr "Raven" Drag (being the first one to translate Revisor to pl_PL). Now, obviously, we need translators to start translating ;-)

The other feature, accessibility, is harder, I think. If anyone of you that reads this can help us with that, I'd appreciate.

Revisor Released

We have released to the updates-testing repositories. I'm not sure it has been build and pushed to the repositories yet. has only bugfixes, and I hope or some other later release will follow shortly, with more bugfixes and the implementation of some of the feature requests we've gotten from users and administrators, and created tickets for:
