I don't agree; this is no more "claiming" Fedora than any
"example.com/fedora" link.  Keep in mind this page has always been
there, and it's a way to drive people looking for Fedora support at Red
Hat to head for the community sites instead.  There is no escaping that
people *associate* Fedora with Red Hat, nor is that particularly a bad
thing.
