Yes my comments are directly related to usage of the Fedora marks in
direct association with a donation button..and only the donation
button. Donations could be problematic for us as a project if we
aren't prepared to deal with them in a transparent fashion.

I've no problem if Xuropa is committed to helping support FEL. In fact
I'm ecstatic! I think what Chitlesh is doing with FEL is absolutely
fantastic and we should all talk about it more.  Getting content
expert business interests like Xuropa lined up to support the
development of FEL and the upstream projects it integrates is a
non-trivial accomplishment worth of support.

We just have to be careful with the donations, because frankly we
aren't setup to deal with them in an equitable and transparent way at
the project level.    The absolute last thing I want to do is give
people the expectation that they are contributing financially to the
Fedora Project when they hit the donation button, but not be able to
keep a track of what those donations are doing.
