Erik, I also found that the simple name "FreeBSD" could not be used. I
also took action and created "FreeBSD Users" which produced the same 2
working day review mail. Will let you know how that goes.
If that's accepted, I was thinking of also creating "FreeBSD
Contributor" and "FreeBSD Committer" as well.
I've shrunken the standard logo down to sizes required by LinkedIn.
Perhaps it would be nice to have separate logos for FreeBSD User,
FreeBSD Contributor, and FreeBSD Committer? I've done a bit of
Googling to see if I could find the custom logo font produced by Anton
Gural, but no luck. Any pointers there would be appreciated. Worst
case, I suppose I could find some other font that's looks reasonably
nice with the logo.

If there were a LinkedIn Group for FreeBSD, I'd join it. Groups
are a new thing on LinkedIn and they seem to be quite viral and

created the group myself, but I'm probably not a good maintainer
for it. Not that it requires much work. Somebody in Advocacy or
Marketing should probably look into creating a FreeBSD group. Just
Good idea Bob. I think you just volunteered. Thank you.
I read your conversation with Bob and I decided to take action. I
received the following message from LinkedIn. The request for a new
FreeBSD group for LinkedIn is currently being reviewed. Within
approximately 2 working days it will be activated if everything goes
well. FreeBSD could not be used as a group name so I took the
liberty to give a new name.
Your request for a group Berkeley Software Distro Corner on LinkedIn
has been received and is pending approval. Please allow 1-2 business
days for our customer service team to review your group request. You
will be notified when your group has been approved or rejected.
