Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 463040
fedora-release contains trademarks?
Last modified: 2013-01-09 20:52:35 EST
Description of problem:
The fedora-release package carries /etc/fedora-release, /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net, which may still contain trademarks (the "Fedora" brand name), or at least cause the Fedora name to be exposed prominently, in sight (system bootup, mingetty (/etc/issue), etc.).
I'm not sure this is actually a bug, but I wanted to note that all trademarks are supposed to be in fedora-logos.
If showing Fedora on a system that is not Fedora (e.g. removed fedora-logos) is a trademark violation, the contents of these files should be altered or they should move to fedora-logos.
If it is not a trademark violation, then I guess we're OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any fedora-release package
Probably just oversight on the list of packages to replace when rebranding. We made an effort to make things depend on 'system-release' rather than 'fedora-release' or 'redhat-release' so that re-branders could provide their own -release file that provides system-release. I really don't see moving the Fedora Release content into some other package.
Adding spot to the cc.
Adding to F10 blocker as we should resolve this issue (whether it is a bug or not) prior to issuing F10.
We can probably resolve this with a "generic-release" package, like we did for generic-logos. I'll whip something up.
