We are completely free to redistribute the rendered logo, just not the font 
that is used to produce it.  This simply means that people cannot reproduce 
the full logo or extend it with more text in the same font unless they 
purchase the font separately.  We can do anything we wish with the vector or 
raster forms of the logo.  The guidelines will establish what powers the 
community has to use our logo, and after the guidelines are made readily 
available, so will key files needed to produce new artwork using the logo.

Existing style references can be found among the Fedora Artwork pages.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork

There won't be much coverage of the logo among those pages until the 
guidelines are available.
