Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814220
Logomarks should be removed and replaced with text
Last modified: 2015-03-03 18:05:05 EST
Legal is requiring that we not use trademarked logos where only a name will suffice. The use of the distro logos in the gnome-devel-demos help should be replaced with simple text names.
Assigning to myself
gnome-devel-docs-3.4.1-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Looks like there was only one page linking graphical logos, replaced by a textual representation. Translations are picked fine from what I've checked.
Please note I did not repack the source tarball, it still contains "illegal" material. Let me know if that needs to be done too.
Discussed at 2012-04-20 blocker review meeting - http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-bugzappers/2012-04-20/fedora-bugzappers.2012-04-20-17.01.log.txt .
As it stands, the blocker review process does not cover legal issues. This could be adjusted if desired. But as the review process has been drawn up to focus on quality assurance - and with the precedent of the feature process, where QA and FESCo have agreed that FESCo should implement its own process to ensure that feature issues are appropriately addressed at the correct times in the release schedule - we think that it would be more appropriate for legal issues to be handled under a separate process. There is certainly space for this.
As it stands, rejected as a blocker.
Thanks for the update, Adam. FYI, to answer questions I saw in the log:
19:27:54 <tflink> good question, I doubt that it's on the dvd
19:30:17 <adamw> unless it's talking about other distros' logos. but, eh.
That's precisely what it's about, and it looks like the package is on the DVD (at least, it's in the "Fedora" tree in Beta, not just "Everything").
Details aside, my understanding is that a fairly minor (possibly even trivial) change like this should be consumable during our Beta -> RC time. So while it may not be a blocker, we can still get a fix into the tree, is that correct?
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gnome-devel-docs-3.4.1-2.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
gnome-devel-docs-3.4.1-2.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
paul: yes. I'm surprised how often this seems to come up, but once again: for _each release phase_, Alpha, Beta and Final, there is an unfrozen period during which any update can get in as long as it meets karma requirements, followed by a fairly short frozen period. Often people seem to assume that the repo stays frozen from Beta to Final, or something, but this is not the case and never has been the case.
