Re: Diana Fongs ICF artwork

Diana Fongs wonderful ICF Fedora backgrounds use the Fedora Logo. At the

can't be included in the Fedora Project. I find this very contradictory
to the stated goals of the Fedora project and I can't really understand
why these wallpapers, clearly intended for use on Fedora systems, is
licensed in a way that prevents inclusion in the Fedora Project?

I do not think we want to include a lot of photographic backgrounds inside the distro anyway.

Can anyone shed some light on to this situation? Can Diana change the
licensing on her artwork to allow inclusion in Fedora? If able to, how
can I convince her to do so?

This is entirely her original work, so I expect Diana may relicense it at will, you have only to persuade her hard enough.

If I would take I wild guess, I would suggest making background channels (http://www.gnome.org/~clarkbw/blog/GNOME/background_channels) work, this certainly will convince a lot of people (maybe even Diana) to release background images with a license compatible with those channels.
