#34: Trademark permission request for the "Fedora Bootstrap" project
Reporter: jcapik | Owner:
Status: new | Priority: normal
Component: Trademarks | Keywords:
This February we resurrected a project called "Fedora Bootstrap", that was
started approximately 4-5 years ago. We requested an authorized logo since
the former one didn't follow the trademark guidelines and then wanted to
announce the project as Fedora affiliated, but according to Kevin Fenzi
and Matthew Miller there might be a problem with the project name itself
as it contains the word "Fedora". The purpose of the project is to cure
Fedora specific bootstrap issues and it can not be used for other distros.
Therefore changing the name just because of the legal stuff seems insane
to me. Matt adviced me to request trademark permission here.
The project homepage is at http://fedora-bootstrap.osop.rhcloud.com/
Please, let me know whether we can keep the name and announce the homepage
AS IS, or whether we need to do tweaks.
Thanks in advance.
