* Ben Cotton:
In response to ticket #299, the Fedora Council is considering the
following policy addition:
The Fedora Council may choose to withdraw Fedora's support from events
or other activities that involve fiscal sponsorship or use of Fedora
trademarks when it determines that participation is not in the
interests of the Fedora Project. Decisions to withdraw support will be
published in venues normally used for Council decisions. Deliberation
and reasoning for the decision should be public to the extent
possible. The Council will engage with the committee/group/team that
is involved with the event in question to ensure their input is
What does withdrawing support mean, exactly? Request for a return of
funding, and removal of all Fedora trademarks from an upcoming event?
Or does this apply to future events only?
If this ambiguity is deliberate, how can event organizers achieve some
planning certainty if they choose to accept Fedora support?
