I can't verify my downloaded Fedora 29 Xfce Spin image, due to the fact, that the checksum is missing in the Fedora-Spins-29-1.2-x86_64-CHECKSUM text file.

Can you please fix this? Thank you!

There was an issue with Xfce and LXQT spins, as well as with Design suite and Astronomy images. They've all been rebuilt later, and their checksums are in the same folder as the images:

Thanks for the information! I've seen that the checksum file's name is "Fedora-UNOFFICIAL-29-20181029.1-x86_64-CHECKSUM", does that mean that these spins are unofficial by now or did I get something wrong?

Don't worry, those images were built by the same team on the same infrastructure, but with some additional fixes. Because they were built a couple of days later then the rest, they were processed separately from the compose that was chosen for this release:

You're welcome. Have fun with Fedora, and look at Whisker menu (xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin), maybe you''ll find it useful.
