Well, for this kind of distributions we could create a special commitee who will be relevant to say if these ones could be defined as being compatible with the requirement of the original distribution .
Maybe we could create a label like "Fedora core 5 approved" or "Fedora core 5 based"
Just an idea.

Subject: Fedora derivatives branding discussion
The Fedora board needs help with a policy decision.
As Fedora evolves, we'll be seeing more and more custom distributions that
are spun from the Fedora Universe of packages. Kadischi-based Live CDs
are a good example. We'd like to be able to allow these distributions to
use the Fedora name -- and we've got tentative buy-in from legal to do it
-- so long as the distros are built entirely from Fedora (Core+Extras)
So. How should the Fedora brand be used in such cases?
Let's say, for example, that Rex Dieter builds a minimal Fedora distro
that has KDE and no GNOME -- and he wants to call it "KDExcellent". He
also wants people to know that it's derived from official Fedora packages.
Should we let him call it:
+ Fedora KDExcellent?
+ KDExcellent, based on Fedora?
+ KDExcellent, a Fedora distribution?
Whatever policy we come up with now, we'll be stuck with for quite a
while -- so we could use some help.
Thanks in advance for your ideas.
