Here's a statement we may need to better clarify on p. 3:

"The working group will also specify policies in terms of branding,
themeing and desktop graphics."

I think we should be clear that any branding efforts need to fit into
the overall branding framework of Fedora.  We should be careful to
avoid having branding diverge between the products to an extent that
makes it harder for us to identify them as part of a family of Fedora

In my time as an FPL, I worked extensively with Fedora folks on
