2 - Fedora Branding Fonts

We decided to try out Comfortaa as a titling font, and Droid sans for
body text tentatively. Both Muffin (Fedora-fr community magazine) and
the newest Design team bounty (Fedora presentation template) will be our
testbed for us to decide how we like these fonts.

We could potentially change the Fedora logotype to the FLOSS titling
font we choose, but that will need to involve Red Hat approval as the
trademark is owned by Red Hat. Just something to consider.

5 - Other

Mel will ask Matt Jadud, a design professor, on what types of activities
