Subject: fedora slashdot interview

So after seeing today's /. story that had quite a few comments about 
Fedora/RH, I pinged the guys over there to see if they would be interested 
in doing an interview directly -- try to get a fresh perspective about 
what's going on in the Fedora world.

What follows is the last email in our thread so far, and it looks like 
it's going to happen next week, unless something holds it up.

I fully intend to have all of the answers come directly out of my fingers 
(no corporate-speak, etc.) but I'm sure that the questions which are 
posted will generate some discussion here.

Nothing more to add now -- let's just wait until it actually happens. This 
is just a heads up.

That sounds great.  Fedora's home is fedoraproject.org (for linking 
purposes), and the best page about me for bio purposes is found there.


Couple quick questions for you:

1.  Do you do any editing of the answers, or just post them directly? I'm 
assuming the latter, which is what I'm hoping for.

2.  I would be appreciative if you would use the Fedora logo either 
instead of or alongside Shadowman in the article summary.  I've attached 
an image that you should be able to modify/use without too much trouble.

3.  fedora.redhat.com is deprecated, and we are working hard to transition 
away from that URL.  So if you would be kind enough to use 
fedoraproject.org in your links, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks, looking forward to the interview.
