Yeah, but Fedora 18 itself is dead. I've always been unhappy with
using Fedora as a server OS, even if the server lives offline. It's
too unstable a target for server builds. Just building a new image
tends to be problematic because the dependencies and updates tend to
disappear. We had a bunch of problems building XS 0.6 back when it was
based on F9, I think, after F9 died. XS 0.7 on the other hand is
supported on CentOS6.x and that has been rock solid.  Sadly, CentOS
does not do ARM (yet).
