The guidelines are still under construction.  If you haven't gotten 
authorization, it could be that your request has yet to be reviewed, or that 
you have presented a usage case for which a decision has not yet been made.

In order to begin developing your graphics, you can access an SVG form of the 
logo that is probably already on your system:

/usr/share/pixmaps/fedora-logo-sprite.svg

It is part of the fedora-logos package in Fedora Core 5.

Even though you may develop your graphics, you should not publish them 
anywhere until you have proper authorization.

There are no plans to purchase and release the font as open.  Last I heard, a 
free font to complement the logo was in the works, but the original font will 
not be made free anytime in the foreseeable future.  It is an unfortunate 
truth, but it is one we must live with for now.

The original font name is Bryant 2.  It is available from Process Type 
Foundry.

You're welcome to make an offer to them to purchase rights to release the font 
as open, but you'd better have some deep pockets.  ;-)
