The intent of fedoracommunity.org was never to create a home for Fedora
Contributors to store material that would not be acceptable for the
Fedora Project and its hosted servers.
So, here's a short list (by no means complete) as to why I am opposed to
1) It will fragment the existing wiki.
2) It will almost certainly lead to aggressive cross-linking between the
wikis, which will give the impression that it is official and ultimately
lead to Red Hat shutting it down, along with the rest of
3) Hooking it into FAS makes it functionally official, and means that
there is a direct link between Fedora Contributors who have likely
agreed to the ICLA/FPCA and contributions which are legally unacceptable
in some way.
fedoracommunity.org is a gray area, in that the Fedora Trademark is in
use, and Red Hat owns the DNS record. What you propose is not the
intended use of fedoracommunity.org (to provide locale/region/language
specific offsite groups domain continuity) and crosses the line
established to minimize the legal risks present.
