Yes, its all about messaging.  Spins are an opportunity to broaden our
appeal by narrowing the message(s).  And let me add, that since this
is a new spin being discussed, its perfectly acceptable to throw out a
baby or two with the bathwater. We got enough babies to go around.
We've got a large rolling faceless sea of babies. It'd be nice to
focus on a few of them at a time and actually see how cute their faces

Pick a focus, make choices that support that focus. if some of those
choices end up being bad ones and the spin has to be editted in a
later revision, that's OKAY.  As long as we are upfront about this
spin as a narrowing of focus and provide a summary of install time
functionality that is missing in this spin as compared to the standard
install, it's going to be OKAY.

The thought to create my own non-official Fedora spin came to mind last week, during the compositing window manager discussion.  Where does the legal stand with the Fedora branding and using it for respins?  I know that unapproved Fedora sites have been forced to remove the logo.  Does this follow suite with unofficial respins?  Would this re-spin be official, and who decides?
