Hi,I was talking recently to a couple of friends who aren't in the software industry and it came out in our recent discussions that both the companies they are working for is using Fedora on their systems. They remarked that they had no idea that Red Hat was involved in Fedora.I still meet people in various places who think Red Hat has stopped working on a free distribution after Red Hat Linux 9 and continue to use it or worse a earlier version.I just looked within Fedora to see if there was any hint and couldn't really find any prominent ones. The note on http://fedoraproject.org is also easily missed. Is this a deliberate decision? Should there be some of co-branding within the distribution and a prominent hint in other places?Something like Fedora - Powered by Red Hat/ Sponsored by Red Hat or some such.
I think this will bring us back 2 years. One of the major advantage given by Red hat; is we got transparent build process; all tools used is GPL'ed, all these efforts are done to invite and welcome contributers, I think co-branding will do exact the opposite.
