Hello,

The Free Software Initiative (SFI) is organizing the event and Canonical is
sponsoring them, that is why their logo is on the banner.
Fedora doesnt sponsor so the fedora logo is not there.

What I noted is we can use this oppertunity to engage with our own FOSS
communities more in our countries.
Because as far as I know the SFD is celebrating by all FOSS lovers in
September each year.

So we can use this as a chance to promote Fedora as well.

Anyway ideas welcome and thanks for raising.
