I think you're correct.  I try to consistently use "Fedora" to mean
"Fedora the distribution," and I use "Fedora Project" when I mean the
project.  However, given how they're used interchangeably by so many
people I need to make a special effort to say "the Fedora
distribution," which is what I said above.

No problem with that here.  Personally I like short, consistent pages
-- they're easier to keep organized and, incidentally, reuse.
