Hello René,

We have had this discussion in the past, but because our logo is
actually a trademark, Red Hat's legal department has advised us that
openly permitting modification could put the Fedora trademark at risk.

We have setup extensive guidelines on when the Fedora trademarks can be
used (and how) here:

This is the best we can do, at this time.
