How to become a vendor?

Unfortunately, we do not provide physical media to vendors to sell 
or re-distribute. We only provide Vendor Listing service via 
OnlineVendors or LocalVendors pages. However, we do have some 
information on "Preparing Media" and "Fedora Trademark Guidelines"
for Media Vendors to follow on Distribution page[1] .
