Fair comments...

Can I assume that the technical review and the trademark approval only 
occur a single time if the SPIN will not be distributed by fedora? If 
so, then I would suggest that all spins start with a Feature Page _or_ a 
  Spin Page (where the former can replace the latter). This would allow 
for a signoff to be made and recorded by the wiki. The only other 
alternative I see would be to move it through bugzilla.. and I would 
tend to prefer the wiki route since all the content could be added to 
the feature page.
