Reviewing the packages, I wonder why the RPM with the kernel source now
is called "kernel-sourcecode" and no longer "kernel-source". Any special
reason for that (while I think it will not break any dependencies)?

Discussed at fedora-test-list with reason being:

yes; the yum/update "you can't update to a noarch package for
kernel-source" mess gets avoided by renaming the package and making it
obsolete/provide the old name.
