Hi, I believe I am the new person to whom Mats refers.  I'm Dan Kohn,  
the new VP, Business Development for the FSG.

Actually though, Amanda, as Director of Marketing, is responsible for  
the branding, and Jim Zemlin has a lot of branding expertise as  
well.  But I certainly have been strongly encouraging the FSG to add  
branding as a core focus of our organization and that is very much  
the direction we're heading.

I just want to emphasize how much I support this.  I would simply it,  
though, to: "All LSB Certified printers work on all LSB Certified  

Please be assured that if you (with Ian's help) can develop the  
testing infrastructure to make the certification meaningful, we will  
do everything possible to get the distros and printing vendors onboard.
