Fedora is still a Red Hat trademark.

That leaves Red Hat at least somewhat legally responsible.

The CLA has caused serious heartburn for some (e.g. Bert Freudenburg)
and I've been on his side in that (because the issues he sees could have
applied to me in previous years).  RH/Fedora is revising the CLA now;
I've seen a copy, but the copy I saw still had some of these issues from
where I sit (I sent a lengthy reply to the RH lawyer working on it).

For certain people, it is *very* off-putting....

All the projects I've been involved with have not had such agreements:
Gnome, X.org Foundation (as opposed to some of its predecessors), etc.
