Mr. Smith,

1.  If you can show me a FREE rebuild project that has released update 3
respun ISOs ... I would like to see it.

2.  Maybe you should either start your own rebuild project ... or use
one of these other, much superior products.

3.  We don't just rebuild the SRPMS ... we rebuild them ... install and
test them ... QA them ... fix issues with them if it doesn't work ...
respin it again ... provide support for 3 arches that the upstream
provider doesn't even support ... 

But I digress ... back to making a quality distro
