Does the Third Party/OEM have to "recertify" with the Fedora Board if
they want to change/update a package on the release? I'd argue that if
they were merely updating it with newer Fedora content (aka, Fedora
Core/Extras updates), then they do not, but any other changes (adding
new packages not from existing Fedora Works, modifying Fedora Works
beyond what was originally documented and approved) would require a new
"trademark certification".

I'd also like a page on the wiki that lists all approved Third Party/OEM
efforts, where each item links to the documented modifications.


This is pretty good IMHO.  Would it be worthwhile for one of the
guidelines to require that the fedora-release package be
installed/retained?  This would dictate that at least the official
repositories are referenced, which would mean that a user of any FCn
$OEM edition would be able to install the full range of official Fedora
software.  This would avoid situations in which users complain about a
"broken" $OEM edition which doesn't include expected software.

Perhaps there are other "make or break" packages of this type.
fedora-logos?  kernel*?  Just a thought...
I reckon this is a good idea. It would mean that an OEM system installed elsewhere can at least have easy (if not automated) Fedora security updates installed (as long as it has a net connection).

In terms of naming/branding, another possibility would be "built upon", where an OEM uses their own branding but refers to the underlying work/branding of Fedora. Something like "Company Media Experts releases the Presentation Publisher tm 4 system built upon Fedora tm" ?
