I worry that we're using the Trademark Guidlines as a means of imposing 
artifical scarcity of resources.

I want to get at the difference between where something is DECIDED or 
DETERMINED and where it is VERIFIED or BLESSED.

Help me fill in the blanks below, please.

* The contents of the kickstart file is DETERMINED by ???? and the 
contents of that kickstart file are BLESSED by ????

* The tools and process by which the kickstart file is turned into an 
ISO is determined by ???? and BLESSED by ????

* The actual running of those tools and following of that process is 
done by ???? and VERIFIED by ????

==

I think this next question is related, but I'm having a hard time 
drawing the line from the above to it, so I'll just throw it out here.

There is a difference between "an official Fedora spin" and "a spin of 
Fedora that follows the trademark guidelines".

Which is Fedora on [EC2/Linode/some-cloud-provider]?  It's the second. 
Right?
