Is it allowed to use fedora icons on my ftpserver or need i create my own ;)
instead of just showing index of files i wrote php script and want to label different folders with different icons.

Fedora is 100% free (like in speech) software... as for website - sure you can use it. only thing wich is not free in Fedora is it's trademark. and it is OK :) you can use art, binaries, code, documentation and so on - licence allows it. but it would be nice of you (but not obligatory) to put somethng a'la "about" page where you state that artwork you are using comes from Fedora project...

only thing which is not exactly free with Fedora is name/trademark - but this is normal. Linux is also a trademark of Linus...

yeah, i know all this and for sure i tell where icons are from and give due credit to developers of fedora.
just wanted at least ask about this before doing anything ;)

The artwork and the fedora and bluecurve brand name is not free as in anything. They are owned by Red Hat. However, we use bluecurve icons in the f.a.q. and I've seen them used elsewhere as well. Use one of the mailing lists and try to get in touch with the Red Hat people. http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/communicate/
