#424 Trademark approval request: Fedora Sway spin and Fedora Sericea
Closed: approved a year ago by bcotton. Opened a year ago by fale.


The Sway SIG would like to provide Fedora users with two new spins:

  • Fedora Sway spin
  • Fedora Sericea

The difference between the two is that the first one is a spin while the second one is rpm-ostree based, and featuring sway.

More information on the initiative can be found at:

Please let us know if there's anything else.

I've created a topic on Fedora Discussion for this ticket.

Please keep this ticket focused. Discuss there, and record votes and decisions here. Thanks!

Please don't fork away OSTree, kickstarts, and comps from the mainline location.

The Council approves usage of the Fedora trademarks for the Sway SIG, to create an official "Sway Tiling WM Spin" and an ostree-based variant called "Fedora Sericea" (pending trademark review). We may revisit the latter in the future as we develop our overall branding plans.

Since this is a trademark matter, we should have full formal consensus. And since it's the holiday season, let's give a little extra time and close voting on December 16th. We need 3 +1 votes by then from Council members, with no outstanding valid -1s.

+1 (with my general reservations about branding as explained in the Discussion thread). :relaxed:

Discussed in 2022-12-07 meeting.

This is ready for trademark review.
