I'm not sure if I get your read on Jonathan's idea.  Are you saying, as
I think Rahul did in a separate list, that this is already covered in
the default bookmarks?

Lol yes, my idea was for an actual presence on the homepage...

If that is what you mean, the reason I asked Jonathan to bring it up
here is:

* We could really give attention to some sites we want to give a
marketing boost to

...and that will provide an improved end-user experience of Fedora and
encourage people to discover more about Free Culture (as I like to
call it) in general - at least is my take.

* We can remove them later, just draw attention to them for launch and a
while afterward

On the other side of the argument ...

* Do we want the homepage to become an advertising medium?  This seems a
step in that direction.  Maybe that is OK, maybe not ...

I wouldn't think pointing to one or two sites which are arguably
related to the goals of the fedora project would equal advertising -
at least not in traditional sense which would lead to your next
conclusion.

I think I like the idea, but I'm a bit concerned about people losing
faith in the homepage because it seems advertising v. informative.

Jon
