I would just like to ask people to remember we are all on the same
here and want to achieve the same thing, to see Fedora succeed.
Adding the Fedora logo to the details panel was not done with the intent
to slight or demean anyone, in fact it was the opposite, it was meant as
gesture of good will and to show that we too understand that Fedora has
a need for branding and visibility.
That the wrong logo ended up being used is unfortunate, but F19 is still
not out so there should be no problem replacing it with the correct logo
without any harm done.
I am sure there will be mistakes made also in the future of one kind or
the other, but lets start giving each other the benefit of the doubt and
respond to such mistakes based on an assumption that everyone involved
wants to do the right thing and thus be happy to correct the error once
pointed out in a friendly way.

Not only I assumed best intentions, I did say I like the idea and that I
think It's a good idea. Kudos to Matthias for doing it.
We just need to change it to fit to our logo usage guidelines, and perhaps
adjust it further so when we finally release Fedora it'll be as beautiful
I really think this is a good time to split this thread, because we have
two issues at hand:
1) We need to change (a bit) they way this dialog looks
2) We need to devise a policy for usage of the Fedora logo inside the
Fedora operation system.
While both these things are related, having them both in the same thread is
So, please continue discussion related to how this dialog should look (and
which logo file it should use exactly) in the Desktop list, and discussion
about the logo usage policy in the Design list.
