Hm, I could have benefited from discussing what the meaning of 'marketing' actually is for Free software, especially now I read there is a fedora-marketing list. How does this fit in with the current project goals, is it a mild, budgetless advocacy concept or a gung-ho tattooed-on-the-forehead self flagellating squad of jihadis that raid corporate offices for re-education of the inhabitants, how that crosses over with RHEL / Redhat Desktop traditional marketing, what the metric is for 'success' on Fedora marketing, how it can even be measured given the inherent redistribution, etc.

My original intention was not to put down you or the project, it wasmerely to generate some discussion.Seriously, best of luck; I have nothing against you and wish you well.
