To run their own donation collection box..no of course not.  And they
are free to do that.
But if they wanted to associate that collection directly with the
Fedora project brand, leveraging the Fedora brand value to increase
interest in donation, but handle all the details of the collection and
distribution...that would be a trademark issue I believe.

I think from our own project perspective, having our name associated
with donations going to support open upstream development is a good
thing for the brand. But the devil is in the details as to how much of
that donation would need to go to community. Obviously a 100% donation
passthrough is something we could support with our brand. Anything
less becomes murkier.
