"Fedora Core is often called a test version of Red Hat, but many
believe that it deserves to be recognised as a fully fledged
distribution in its own right. Led by a community and sponsored by Red
Hat, Fedora is probably one of the most popular GNU/Linux
distributions in the world, with users including Wikipedia. It
recently reached its sixth release, so let's see what's inside.

At our company, we have found that phone conferences are very
productive, but unless there is a transcriptionist, what each person
takes away from that conversation isn't always the same. And the
contents of the conversation is not available to those not on the

Fedora isn't just turning a great big ship ( RH, cough ), it is
turning a ship, building a ship, and at the same time trying to
respond to all the shouters on the dock telling you what to do to both.
Yeah, it's gonna take time.
From an end-user perspective, I just want to see continuous
( I think there has been a great deal of progress FC5 => FC6
_outside_ of the versions on the packages that are on the discs )
Speed isn't that important to me because Fedora will never be "done"
- there isn't really a finish line.

Hi, we have a contributor who posted a modified logo with fedora-ve
text in it.
Is it valid to do such modifications? I dont want to punish him but
certainly he has a point on localizing the logo somehow.
What's the policy in this case? To encourgae him to make it "the
right" or not to modify it at all ?

As some friends and me are preparing a series of Fedora events to take
place in the coming months, we were wondering what is the correct term
for "Fedora Linux" legally speaking. We will be making some stickers
which amongst other things will feature the legend "Fedora Linux", and
since Linux when used in certain contexts can be referred to as Linux®,
also I remember that Red Hat refers to Fedora as Fedora™, so when put
together both terms, what is the correct way to put them:
I do believe that the same applies to the Logo, where the Infinity Logo
is accompanied by the ® symbol, but I'm not sure.
Thanks in advance for your inputs and clarifications.
