We don't communicate it at all.  We just take the term and swing it 
around like a 9-iron, and dare someone to take it away from us.  And when 
they do try, we have an aggressive communications plan that says "Fedora: 
Remixing since 2006.  Booyah."

Oh, and also, we put "Fedora Remix" in the boot sequence of every OLPC 
system on earth.  Scoreboard.
