Actually the name of Fedora Legacy was coined by the folks who proposed
the entire Fedora Project thing in the first place IIRC.  They already
had the names of Fedora Core, Fedora Extras, Fedora Legacy, and Fedora
Alternatives.  Alternatives never saw the light of day, and it appeared
that Legacy would neither unless somebody stepped up and took it on.
Being very dependent on slightly longer release cycles for my day job, I
took up the task of making Legacy happen.

I'm not opposed to changing the name, but lets make sure that we're
changing it for a good reason, not just changing just to change.
