That's completely separate to the Fedora trademark though and the
permission to use one doesn't necessarily include the other, and my
understanding of Fedora remixes is that you need to include the vast
majority of packages without modification yet I've seen a number of
packages that have completely different NVRs to what we ship in Fedora
which tells me it's either been forked or there's changes that aren't
headed back upstream, again which means it's a fork.
