Hello there,

For the fourth consecutive fedora releases, I'm requesting Fedora
Board the permission to use Fedora trademark and Fedora Logos with
respect to the work done behind Fedora Electronic Lab.

== About FEL ==

Fedora Electronic Lab is Fedora's high-end hardware design, simulation
and verification platform. It helps users to create chips, pcbs ...

Website : http://chitlesh.fedorapeople.org/FEL/

Our work done are summarised on this page
Even items for F-12 development cycle are  listed.

In brief, Fedora Electronic Lab's goals sum up to
* Propose a portfolio for hardware _design_ with opensource tools
* Propose a portfolio to _simulate_ hardware design with opensource tools
* Propose a portfolio for hardware design _verification_ with opensource tools
* Provide methodologies to use opensource EDA tools in an efficient way
* Promote a community around FEL
* Bridge 2 communities - opensource software community and opensource
hardware community
* help new opensource EDA software developers
* Help upstream with the marketing of their tools
* Lead the opensource communities to the current semiconductor industry trend
* Help lecturers include software under the FEL umbrella in their
syllabus - we have already since on fedora marketing and fedora
electronic lab mailing list, that some indian lecturers have already
done so.

The last three FEL releases exceeded our expectations - at least mine
-. We are hoping that with F11 we could put the quality barrier even
higher and expands our FEL portfolios.

If you have any doubts or questions please feel free to reply to this email.

Kind regards,
