Oh my, you're right.  Well...

#1) One way we could solve this would be to simply include the page
listing at the Fedora Community portal site somewhere, as static
content.  Ugh.

#2) Renaming fedoracommunity.org is very ugly because people have been
accumulating subdomains there for months.  Plus, the domain name was
blessed by Legal last year (when we were still talking about
"MyFedora") because the domain name helps make it clear that we don't
own the site, and aren't responsible for content.

#3) Renaming the Fedora Community portal/app is ugly too, in terms of
being a momentum killer.

#1 may look least revolting, but then there are specific problems with
translations.  How do we deal with confusion between the site that's a
French translation of Fedora Community, and the site that's a center
of activity for a French-speaking local Fedora group?

Wow, this is a thorny problem -- I wish the naming collision had
occurred to me sooner. :-(
