As someone pointed out elsewhere, you'll want to make sure all your
text removes references to "Fedora Core" and instead uses "Fedora."
Don't mean to sound like a broken record, though!  Read on...

The Fedora Project doesn't endorse independent materials.  But you
don't need our permission to publish, as long as you are adhering to
our trademark guidelines, which are shown here:


In particular, we have a section on publications, shown here:


Basically, you don't need our permission to use screenshots, or
reference to our trademarks, as long as you follow those guidelines,
including the section on proper trademark use.  If you have any
specific questions as you read those, feel free to send them to
legal fedoraproject org 

Thanks for writing, and I'm also happy to answer any other questions
you send here to the list.
