Snipping to Board-specific area below...  This is a worthy and
interesting project, Chitlesh.

So the trademark is to be used to present a fully 100% Fedora spin, as
approved through the spins process, only on a third-party web site.
Is that correct?

A couple concerns:

* The donation feature should let people know before they finalize any

* Is it possible that such a donation feature may be more trouble to
track than it's actually worth?  Can we do the site *without* a
donation feature?
