My main worry is brand marketing. When I think of Red Hat Magazine, I
expect items/content written/produced for the Red Hat products: RHEL,
RHN, RHCE, RH-DS, RH-IPA, etc. [Even though that has not been the
general trend of the magazine.] I don't think Fedora as at least in my
brain I keep them as separate entities. A Fedora Magazine I would
expect items on Fedora Linux, Spacewalk, FreeIPA, Fedora-DS, Dogtags,

Does that make sense to others? What would be the end product and what
'marketing brand' would it mostly embracing?
