It's definitely recommended to make the Fedora typeface white in this
case -- if you can't read "Fedora" without squinting, change it.
The code currently loads the png from
and generates the "Welcome to" text from MgOpen Modata Bold in the same
Panotone 2935 of the logo typeface. If the logo typeface was made white, it
would constitute keeping a separate image in the Fedora-tour data directory or
adding another image to the fedora-logos package, I'd assume? The former is
not a Good Thing, and the latter would probably take some intervention with
Fedora-legal? I'm not sure of the details, tbh. What are everyone's thoughts?
Any workarounds come to mind?
Filing a bug against fedora-logos and attaching the proposed PNG with a
rationale would probably do the trick.
