Hi,

according to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=522988#c14 
packages shouldn't get names that are general terms like "parser" or 
"smtp". If this is actually the case, "ascii" is probably an 
inappropriate name too.
Should the package requested in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=523799
therefore be prefixed or renamed even if "ascii" is the upstream name? 
Or is it OK as is, after all?

Regards,
Martin
