Yes, that particular article is not particularly useful, as opposed to 
say, wikipedia's "Fedora Core" article which at first glance actually 
seemed pretty good.

I think it would be bad form (since you're not supposed to Wikipedia about 
yourself) for, say, me to give some love to wikipedia's Fedora pages, but 
if, I don't know, the community members who make up Fedora Marketing 
wanted to do some more work in there, that wouldn't be a bad thing.  :-)

That "Project Organization" chart is interesting.  A bit confusing, and a 
bit Red Hat focused for my tastes.

Fedora != Red Hat

I'd rather see a description of some of the sub-projects that make up the 
larger Fedora Project (Core, Extras, Ambassadors, Docs, and so on) and how 
the Fedora Project Board handles all of that.

Wikipedia should be used as a summary of *facts* since it is meant as a 
collection of facts, and as a way of pointing people to more facts on the 
fp wiki, not as a place where we have to replicate all of our wiki 
content.  That just makes stuff get out of date.
