Suppose I would want to make my own Fedora fan page and want to put a header with "my fedora fan page" on top of it with the same font face.


There are lots of GPL projects out there that use commercial fonts for their logos. For instance, phpBB had no regrets using Tripex for theirs.

This is true, but also a lot of GPL projects are changing the fonts used in the logo from propietary one to a free one at the request of the community. For example such a change is expected at OpenOffice.org.

Regarding your phpBB example, look at http://www.phpbb.com/images/pic-home2.jpg The font used for "creating communities" is probably Arial Bold Italic but can be easily replaced with Bitstream Vera Sans Bold Italic.

Is not the logo, but the wordmark which may be needed to be customised.

Besides that, I think Matt's proposed logos are very neat and plain... cool, if I may say so.

The quality of the logo and the font used for the wordmark are completely orthogonal.
