Does it make sense to gather all people against a uname -r in name
scheme to try to persuade otherwise? Either in the regular
#fedora-packaging meetings or on a special meeting?

I really thing there is a flaw and the uname-r-in-name is the only way
out, and I'd try to persuade people about that. Maybe they could be
poited to this mail thread as well, as everything is in principle layed
out here.

Or, if you know it's a lost cause, let's silence this topic, which
would be a rather sad outcome.
