Just saw the index page and I cannot see a Fedora logo in there! Anyhow
ie. Canonical is well presented amongst with other "not that 100% FOSS"

Is there any change to get Fedora presented somewhere in those pages at
least because of the fact that Fedora is much more (100%) open than
Canonical/Ubuntu is!

How could we contact them. Anyone near there? Someone really knows
somebody in there? Obviously the banner in there costs a "million" or
how it goes?

I have been organizing events for Software Freedom Day since 2007 but never distributed single Ubuntu CD but Fedora and its remix Hanthana Linux. Recently I registered at SFD site and I did not requested Ubuntu CDs during the registration process as I am not intended to promote Ubuntu during the event but the concept of Free and Open Source Software.

Its up to you whether you registering your event or not. I never get any swag from their side but definitely the SFD site works as a central location to list all events around the world.

You can ask Red Hat to sponsor on behalf of Fedora if you want to make Fedora logo visible in the the home page. :)
