Well, it is an important factor to offset the negatives. At least to
me I can't really say I would favor this or not from an ambassador
perspective without having some idea of the magnitude.
But now I'm curious about the other piece of private information, not
what the number is but the pricing of what exactly?
Let me rephrase that question. Is having Fedora featured in LPM
considered advertising in their business model? If it is then I think
the folks who are privy to that information are the only ones in a
position to make an intelligent judgment about whether this is worth
doing. As an ambassador I can say (a) it sounds like a cool thing, (b)
we could manage for a release cycle with fewer media options than we
have now, and (c) I trust those who know the details of the
arrangement to make a wise choice for the project.
