Official Request: Image Standard for Fedora Project


This is an official request for Fedora Project Board Meeting Agenda.

Agenda: Image Standard for Fedora Project.

Background: Fedora Websites Team, Fedora Arts Team and Fedora
Infrastructure Team were discussing which image format is appropriate
standard for Fedora Project.  Thomas Chung believes PNG is the best
format since it's patent-free according to FSF.  Toshio Kuratomi
believes JPEG is also patent-free format and it should not be banned
from using it.

* https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-infrastructure-list/2007-May/msg00107.html

We'd like to ask Fedora Project Board to find out if JPEG is truly
"patent-free" format by consulting with Lawyers and come up with a
decision which format is appropriate for Fedora Project cross-wide.

Best Regards,
Thomas Chung
