I can't think of a better place for discussions on whether it is
reasonable for Fedora to be introduced, at its web front page, as a
Linux-based, rather than as GNU+Linux-based or GNU-based.

Evidently no list outside the Fedora project would be suitable for
this discussion, and I don't see any other list in which it wouldn't
be ruled off-topic or fail to reach the intended audience.

If you have a better suggestion, I'm all, erhm, eyes :-)
