The guidelines are still under construction. If you haven't gotten
authorization, it could be that your request has yet to be reviewed, or that
you have presented a usage case for which a decision has not yet been made.
In order to begin developing your graphics, you can access an SVG form of the
logo that is probably already on your system:
It is part of the fedora-logos package in Fedora Core 5.
Even though you may develop your graphics, you should not publish them
anywhere until you have proper authorization.

There are no plans to purchase and release the font as open. Last I heard, a
free font to complement the logo was in the works, but the original font will
not be made free anytime in the foreseeable future. It is an unfortunate
truth, but it is one we must live with for now.
The original font name is Bryant 2. It is available from Process Type
You're welcome to make an offer to them to purchase rights to release the font
as open, but you'd better have some deep pockets. ;-)
