First step is to make it easy to avoid trademark issues, and it looks
like we should be able to do that with generic logos in a package that
conflicts with fedora-logos.  Please,everyone be on the look out for
packages in fedora which include the fedora trademarks. Only the
fedora-logos package should include the protected trademarked
material. If you run across a package that includes them we need to
file a bug against the package component as well as fedora-logos so we
can get this fixed up.   If we can keep all the other packages clear
of fedora marks we make it easier for derived custom spins to re-brand
as needed.

I'm still interested in taking it further and trying to find a way to
give everyone who is working with our tools and our content to raise
their hand and say they stand among a group of peer projects as part
of a larger effort.  We can't have these project advertise fedora as a
mark, but I'll be damned if we can't find a way to have Fedora and all
these projects advertise..community.
