control-center-3.8.0-2.fc19 added the Fedora logo (instead of the GNOME
logo) on the details panel of the GNOME desktop control center. This is a
good idea, but I see two problems:
1) Use the full logotype, not just the logomark
2) The lack of the ™ symbol next to the logomark violates our own logo

(1) I don't anything about Anaconda in that message
(2) The message has nothing to do with the fedora-design team and
shouldn't be on this mailing list
Thanks for running Fedora, but it might be more productive to send your
desktop evalution report to Gnome developers or fedora Desktop Group.
design-team mailing list
as the time for the alpha release will be soon, we should work on the
banners. I sat down and tried to create something.
Maybe someone has a better idea

I personally dislike having the release name there. Especially that large,
we shouldn't emphasize it.
IMO we should either
a) use only the release number and not display the name, which is an
internal community injoke and nothing more.
b) put the release name and version under the gnome release version, and
have the full logomark on the top.
Cultural Freedom Day is on 18th May'2013.
Since most of India would be reeling under heat during the period. It might
help if we can organize a set of online activities instead.
Invade the cultural space with free software.
