Just to clarify here... the Board debated back and forth between
several different options -- A blackout, a blackout with
click-through, a banner, or a ticker (on any combination of the
website, the wiki, and start.fedoraproject.org).  After some healthy
debate back and forth, we come up with three different proposals.  One
was a blackout (with click-through) specifically aimed at SOPA/PIPA.
The second was the ticker on fedoraproject.org simply linking to a
general statement on the wiki, and leaving it there for the rest of
January.  If I remember correctly, proposal three was "do nothing".
The second proposal received the most votes.  If we can put a
similarly sized ticker on start.fp.o and the wiki, I'm fine with
having it there as well.

The text for the ticker might read "Fedora's Statement on Internet Freedom".
