Chitlesh, you'll definitely be able to use the logo at the Online
Booth.  You're promoting an official Fedora spin, and supporting the
Fedora Project through the Online Booth.  The logo should link to the
official Fedora Project site at http://fedoraproject.org and then
everything's good to go.  Reading our trademark guidelines, I don't
see any problem whatsoever with this arrangement.  In fact, we've
specifically set up those guidelines to allow personal and business
sites to support Fedora in this fashion.

Whether the logo is attached to a donation button might generate more
discussion.  I think that's the situation to which Jef was
specifically referring.  But thanks to James' suggestion, we can
consider that as a separate matter from the Online Booth, which should
be good to proceed.
