Interesting indeed, possibly boarding on absurd? The way you have described it has a slightly more utility. As it says, we need to refer to licensor(upstream) as original authors in the adaptation yet can not imply that they endorse the adaptation. > > Its a case of someone putting in a bit of time, downloading the docs for > EL6 from redhat.com - sanitising them, making sure the images and all TM > objects are handled correctly, the right disclaimer is added to the > footer of the pages, and we can host that on www.centos.org/docs For starters, I propose replacing all occurrences of upstream's name and replace all the upstream logos with CentOS ones.

Could you also send through two more things : I should be fine on the machine side of things, thanks.
