Re: Fedora Remix - Clarification

Rahul,

If you want to call it "Fedora", then make it official.

Oh, believe me. I tried.  I got one of the dozen spins hosted at
http://spins.fedoraproject.org and then it was stopped because of lack
of space or it was considered too much effort for composing all the different variants or some much. I didn't have the time or energy to go through the process again for Fedora 10. Now there are folks who are looking to create local language spins, I think waiting for Fedora 11 (since I can't do it out of band, officially) and going through the same ordeal is too much overhead especially since it is going to be bittorrent only and that means no download for quite a few people who only have bandwidth at the office and corporate policy says no bittorrent.

The only reason was for lack of space or bandwidth to host them. Now that I have some of that, it is just much easier to bypass the official process and do it elsewhere. If I have to invent a dozen odd names to satisfy the trademark requirements, I will but it just seems much more saner to allow this within the Fedora remix guidelines. It makes my work easier and makes it easier to give credit to Fedora.

Rahul
