[Fedora-packaging] TeX package naming

Way back in October FPC voted on naming TeX-related packages "tex-foo"
as opposed to the old "tetex-foo" or, in recent distros,

It doesn't seem that this was ever implemented; there's no specific
"TeX" section http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines
and indeed "tetex-" is specifically mentioned in the "Addon Packages
(General)" section.

I'd just edit this in but that document has a block at the top with a
version string and I've never quite understood the protocol for
updating it.
