That's actually up to the QA team, and AFAIK the kde spin is blessed already and distributed by the mirrors. This is a pure marketing decision. Do we want it on the get fedora page or not.

And this is a matter for discussion, not for a simple vote.

With this clarification from Mike, let's set aside our personal preferences
with regards to Gnome vs KDE for a minute and focus on the marketing message
here:  What is the effect on the overall Fedora marketing effort of
prominently featuring the KDE spin vs not doing so?

My gut reaction is that it might help promote Fedora within the KDE
community, which would be a positive thing.

Are there any downsides to doing this from a marketing perspective that we
ought to consider?

There's an awful lot of choices on that screen. Adding another one will not help towards NOT overwhelming newcomers. If someone knows well enough that they want KDE over GNOME they are probably quite able to dig one screen down to get to KDE. Just something to consider.

(how about just GNOME on this screen but next to the spins link, have something like (including the KDE spin!) next to it?)
