The latter, of course (and I'm sure you know that :-) ).

And this is exactly the problem with the naming. The "Fedora Desktop team"
is basically identical to the Red Hat Desktop Team which is really a GNOME
team, not a desktop team. How Red Hat calls their departments is their own
business, but their internal naming should not leak into the names of
released products/projects/spins/whatever.

Just because it's produced by a team calling itself the "Desktop Team"
doesn't make it the "desktop spin".
