Hi

A recent discussion in EPEL about whether README.Fedora would be
confusing to EPEL users has brought into forefront what I consider a
good packaging guideline for Fedora to follow which is to avoid using
the "Fedora" name as much as possible in package names and files with
exceptions like "Fedora directory server" and recommend using generic
names wherever possible.

This would certainly help in being a better upstream for distribution
and other efforts that are based on Fedora including RHEL, EPEL or OLPC.

In this specific instance I believe the guidelines should be mandating
README.distribution instead.

Refer to

for the discussion.

At what point does this become silly though?

Do you want me to define silly or give an example where I consider it silly? I think trying to rename Fedora Directory Server at this point would be silly as opposed to the above request which I consider valid. Do you disagree with that request or the general idea or both?
