This is the second or third time I have entirely missed the naming discussion.

Why?

Not all contributors slavishly read every word on fedora-devel-list.

Next time, PLEASE, a cross-project announcement is in order.  Otherwise
you disenfranchise every project that does not have f-devel-l as their
primary project list.

Previously it was suggested that the people who make the distribution
should be involved in the naming, that is why it is not on e.g.
fedora-list.  These days, I can't see how we can imagine making a distro
without all of the other subprojects.  Why should we name the distro
without them?
