I think automatic downloads are forbidden in Fedora. We have some
download stuff, but
a) it requires the user to confirm
b) it's only allowed to download to user's $HOME but not to /usr/share.

Also I don't like the idea from a packaging POV, because the logo will
not be owned by the package (well, in fact I could by marking it %ghost,
not sure if there is something similar in deb.)

Might be the best in a long term. In a short term I will remove the logo
I think. I prefer breaking the TWCi agreement over breaking Fedora's
guidelines. ;)

Anyway: Still waiting for feedback from Fedora Legal. Until then, I wont
touch the package.


P.S.: Colin, I reviewed quitcount for inclusion in Fedora. Great tool,
even though I'm a non-smoker. ;)
