Yeah, I thought about pulling from the echo icon pallet but I figured
the colors in the logo were a safe bet.  Altering the colors in the
posters was actually very easy, could you show us something you like
better?

I'm operating on the assumption that the colors used within the logo
are "official".  I notice that there is clearly an intention to add
more colors to that page but it hasn't been done yet.  Máirín blogged
about some color pallets she was playing with in Agave but I suspect
there hasn't be an actual effort to define a Fedora color pallet. That
is probably a task that should be worked on by both the Marketing and
Artwork teams.
