First observations



All,

Thank you for your comments. Just a couple of first observations.

Thanks Nicu for the info. I took a look at the link but the "a" in the
Bryant2 font did not appear to be the same as the "a" in the fedora logo
(?).

I see the fedora logo is trade marked and there is a long list of legal
precautions attached as a result. Normally a trade marked logo is to be
presented without alterations although I did not find examples to be
used in new art work (?).

IMHO the intent of any open source project is to foster inclusion. In
the case of art work, encourage artistic submissions.

I find myself with the desire to help but I can't get started. 

Here are the obstacles I see.

1) If bryant2 is the official fedora font, doesn't its $50 to $350 price
place an unfair burden on those who wish to contribute?

2) If I don't use the official font will I be at odds with the trade
mark or the community?

Any guidance here would be appreciated.

John
