Fedora Repo N -> repository with all the packages (e.g. merged Core and
Extras) of the certain release "N"; some people suggested to call it
"Fedora Collection" as that would be more in line with the fcN which we
use as disttag; but well, the name "Repo" is IMHO much more obvious (at
least for me as a non-english speaker).

Fedora Linux N -> the Linux Distribution that was known as Prime spin in
hte past weeks. This would allow us to create a Fedora OpenSolaris,
Fedora Hurd or whatever distribution should we ever want to do go into
such a direction.

Those two names would also differentiate between the "Fedora Project",
which is referenced as plain "Fedora" often, too.
