(Should we point people here to Ambassadors/BusinessCards? Do we want people to use the business card template that we advertise, or are we ok with anything homemade? We need to follow up on Ian's work to make a new Business Card template. --Max)
Spins with patches
So, the granting of trademark permission is only based on whether or not 100% of the spin is in the Fedora repositories? Is there any sort of "usefulness" or "originality of spin" requirement, or is that a separate process? --Max
I think there needs to be some sort of 'usefulness/originality' metric for anything advertising it as 'Fedora <whatever>'. -- Bill
If it's gonna be named "Fedora <whatever>" it has gone through the Spin Submission Process, which takes into account the usefulness of spins being advertised as "Fedora <whatever>".
We will however, NOT accept spins with patches unless there's a very, very good reason. Topic in this little thread might be a little misleading --Jeroen
Well, we can't exactly force this on anyone - see fedora.org. -- Bill
- I'd like to find out how much carrot and how much stick have been applied in that particular case to date.
Hybrid? FOSS? ISV?
On the "Hybrid Pure Fedora-derived spins and additional content on same medium", or "Pure Fedora-derived spins", not entirely clear:
* Joe wants to hand out his Presentation/Artwork on a Fedora Live CD or USB thumb drive - pure Fedora, added content * Doh Inc. wants to demo their ISV product
"Hybrid pure derived?"
Which is it?
- Hybrid? Free and Open Source software altogether, found in Fedora, but with added content?
- Pure? Pure genuine Fedora altogether?
- Derived? Recompiled and rebranded and not Fedora anymore?
