Fedora brand WAS Re: Self-Introduction | John Adams, Red Hat Brand Manager



Hey there :) 

Great to have you on board - I already have a question for you though so
I hope you don't mind me just firing away. I don't know if it's relevant
to you, or relevant full stop but...

On the matter of Fedora's brand. Before we can market a brand
(positioning, strategy etc) do we need to decide what Fedora's brand is?
Obviously the project has a name, logo and a product. But going beyond
that there was a long discussion a while ago about Fedora's target
audience (see this post for some relevant info:
http://mmcgrath.livejournal.com/7374.html). 

To sucessfully market Fedora, do we need to define what it is that
Fedora actually is? Maybe other people have already figured this
out...maybe this isn't relevant. Thought I'd ask though becuase that
discussion interested me and I don't remember any particular resolution
to it.

Best wishes,

Jon
