Fedora Remix: A custom distribution from proven design*
Fedora offers a complete set of tools for generating your own customized distribution. The output format can be installable CDs or DVDs, or Live images suitable for CD/DVD or USB keys. These tools allow sub-communities to consume and contribute to FOSS using a platform that is geared toward their specific needs.
This talk will discuss the toolset and how the tools can be used to fill a variety of needs for the hobbyist, the administrator, or the FOSS advocate.
Additional discussions about trademarks and legal rights to create a Fedora Remix will be discussed and how Fedora enables others to use a secondary trademark to benefit redistribution.
