Does the GPL protect you?

not sure it does. Do any of the people who might want to help out want
have the money to find out if it protects you? I don't.

But let's drop this as a trademark issue and bring up a more solid
point, if there are new tools written by !red hat people why would this
programs be named redhat-config-something.

For that matter why fedora-config-something as 'fedora' JUST fedora is a
TM of red hat.

config-something seems fine to me, but somebrand-config-something seems
