Right.  Potential users should keep in mind that the "Fedora Remix"
mark carries specific requirements too, which are easily met.  One of
those is clearly indicating that the remix in question is not an
official product of the Fedora Project, and further indicating where
to get official Fedora software.  That clause is there to help prevent
dilution of the brand and ensure that no one is confused about the
origins of any particular software.
