Yes, I am ok with it. Btw, the issue describing the new logo problems
and the place where we expect discussion to happen is the following:


This is a great opportunity for the community to bring fresh ideas
around the CentOS symbol once again since the last discussion in this
other link:

In my opinion the distribution release announcement really depends on
what we are targeting here (something worth to mention in the announce
note too). For example, gui-desktop, gui-server, non-gui-server, etc.
If we are targeting a non-gui-server distribution we are good to go as
we are now (the issues we have are not visually relevant), but it
wouldn't be the case if we are targeting a gui-desktop or gui-server
distribution (the issues we have are visually relevant).

The issues related to centos-logos backgrounds (which are not visible
yet) and the Tour application (showing Fedora logo instead of CentOS
logo in one of the first welcome screens the user sees after a clean
install) are still present. Surely I am not seeing the entire picture
here but it seems to be lower in quality to announce a Desktop
distribution without background images and a logo different from the
one used by the project to identify itself, in a place where the
project mark should be stamped on.

Considering the continuos nature of this release, the fact that issues
pending to solve will always exist, and the need of releasing: would it
be possible to include a new section to the release note to provide a
list of those unsolved issues dynamically? Probably a link to
bugzilla.redhat.com filtering by some specific tag or something like

The issue related to distribution default web browser welcome page
(centos-indexhtml) is already fixed. Thank you Carl.
