A tool for downloading Fedora images. By default it targets the Workstation edition of Fedora.

Usage examples:

dl-fedora rawhide : downloads the latest Fedora Rawhide Workstation Live iso

dl-fedora 38 silverblue : downloads the Fedora Silverblue iso

dl-fedora respin kde : downloads the latest KDE Live respin

dl-fedora 37 server --arch aarch64 : will download the Server iso for armv8

dl-fedora --run 38 : will download Fedora Workstation and boot the Live image with qemu-kvm.

dl-fedora --local rawhide : shows the current locally available image (as well as the latest one). With --dryrun it doesn't check for newest iso.

By default dl-fedora downloads to ~/Downloads/ (correctly the XDG user "DOWNLOADS" directory), but if you create an iso subdirectory (~/Downloads/iso/) it will use that directory instead.

If the image is already found to be downloaded it will not be re-downloaded of course. Curl is used to do the downloading: partial downloads will continue.

A symlink to the latest iso is also created: eg for rawhide it might be "Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-Rawhide-latest.iso".

It also tries to check the iso checksum and its gpg signature.
