I doubt it would be a problem, and it would help distinguish the RHM
content from FWN/fedoramagazine.org.

This is entirely my vision of how this could work, so take it with that
hefty grain of salt.
* Consolidate writers and editors of RHM, FWN, and a to-be Fedora
Magazine as one virtual team
* Create 3.5 distinct web presences:
redhatmagazine.com -- as it is right now, just with even more
fedoramagazine.org -- content that appears in RHM.com tagged as Fedora
also appears here. Front page ticker shows FWN.
news.fedoraproject.org -- news aggregation that may share some content
developer.redhatmagazine.com -- same mission as RHM.com, same
relationship with fedoramagazine.org, focused on developer content
* Work the editorial calendar and such to create a unique voice amongst
them, while reducing the work each needs stand-alone.
The Red Hat Magazine brand is definitely Red Hat, but it has spent a lot
of effort over the years at creating a stand-alone voice within the Red
Hat sphere. Dev Fu is in a similar vein. I think there is a lot of
room to make a closer association and not lose on the community side,
gaining all around.
