Hello Paul,
yes, indeed it will be more than helpful to get the official paper from
Red Hat legal, that we are not allowed to have the brand "Fedora" in the
name of our NPO. As I asked at the conversation I would also like to
receive a statement, why Red Hat is taking away our Identification as
supporting Fedora NPO ...
That's all I want to have, because I have to explain as President WHY we
should rename. And to be honest, I'm no lawyer who can explain that
better why things changed in two years ...

Thanks for your help in that issue.

All the Best

Gerold
