In 2011 I filed the bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=681339 in which I argue that the logo images of a caricature of a Native American child (and additional similar package images) violate Fedora packaging guidelines concerning acceptable content, particularly: "Content should not be offensive, discriminatory, or derogatory. If you're not sure if a piece of content is one of these things, it probably is." https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines?rd=Packaging/Guidelines#CodeVsContent
According to the afore-referenced document: "All content is subject to review by FESCo, who has the final say on whether or not it can be included."
The Fedora package maintainer of cherokee, Pavel Lisy, while stricly speaking responsive, has failed to resolve the aforementioned bug in any way. My assumption, if those guidelines are accurate, is that ordinarily the package maintainer ought to bring an issue like this to FESCo for some resolution. Since he has not done so, I am submitting a ticket to FESCo myself.
