Nothing.  But I can't find that logo anywhere on the fedora site, so I 
doubt that it's our version of the BSD devil, or shadowman, etc.

Paint me gunshy.  Redhat's made it very clear that they won't brook 
anybody messing with their trademark.  That's fine with me, they have a 
vested interest in protecting their intellectual property.  I just want 
something that I can put on the CD's I burn so that I and the folks I give 
them to can easily and quickly know for which CD they're reaching.  That's 
the whole idea of GUI icons, no? :)

Good idea, but I have a hard enough time keeping up with *this* list.  
Another one and I would have to quit my job to keep up with the mail. LOL
