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 ?

I have used "xvidcap" in connection with "Xnest". I have written it on the
Wiki, but someone deleted it... I can write it once again, but I do not know
who someone removed the content I wrote there before. I am answering today,
because I have formatted my /home partiton "by accident"... (just wanted to
resize, heh... I thought I will never do something like that and was
surprised how other people can do so, now I know...). Now I have to restore
my data. I am waiting for a new disk now, so I will have a space where I
will be able to put my restored files.
Should we take this discussion to a "more technical" list?

I am in the process of completing an entry for the UK Linux and Open
Source awards and I am wondering if you could lend me a hand.
I am entering Fedora Core 5 in the "Best Linux / Open Source
distribution" category and I would really appreciate it if you could
write a quick 250 words about Fedora and why it is the best
distribution. I am sure you discuss this most days, so hopefully it
should not take you too long!
PS - Did everything go well with Nick Veitch from Linux Format?

In August, 24th, 25th and 26th happened the III Festival de Software
Livre da Bahia (3rd Bahia Free Software Festival). It's an event with
participants from all over Brazil.
Hugo Cisneiros presented a lecture about Fedora. We (Othon Batista,
Hugo Cisneiros and Cristiano Furtado, Brazilian Fedora Project)
distributed 100 DVD with Fedora Core 5, 200 flyers with Fedora Project
information and 200 pens. We also took part in the "Install Fest",
helping installing Fedora Core 5 in the user's computers. Beyond that,
we had a Fedora stand with laptops running Fedora Core 5.

Last time there was loudly about the screencasts showing how to do
paricular tasks on Fedora Core. I have prepared the first movie and
uploaded it to the Wiki. I would be grateful if you provided feedback on
it. I mean mainly the language - whether it is enough understadable.
There is one interrupt in the sentence "We see the window informing
us...", because of technical reasons. I will correct it quickly and
upload corrected version. Now I just would like to hear feedback on the
one that is on the Wiki. You can find it at
