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


And taht's just what I simply don't get... How did the logo using this font got approved in the first place?, of Fedora which advocates use of freely available (freedom, no bounds attached, not free as in beer) tools, software, docs, etc.

In my understanding, the copyright does not cover how a font face look, only the implementation, the "program" (the specific TTF file) - http://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/20050425novalis

So implementing something which looks like that font should be OK. Here is an *ugly* and unpolished start: http://fedora.nicubunu.ro/artwork/logo/fedora_font.svg (it does not look extremely bad at small resolutions). With a few days of work it should be possible to create something acceptable for screen (not print) usage.
