Out of curiosity I glanced over the issue. If these guidelines were
all one has to fulfill then he could be distributing Debian CDs with

What Hans is after is the permission context of trademark/logo usage,
not the technical ci/cd constraints.

Common sense sais that what Hans wants to do is OK, but the
authoritative people probably sit on the fedora-marketing list.
