Re: Use of asterisk "*" in distro name

 From what I've heard at FOSDEM, 'Fedora 7' was the only term used for
our next version. Things are most likely heading towards that direction
for the name AFAIK.

Has anyone considered a possible naming conflict with the other Fedora?

"Fedora (or Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository
Architecture) (not to be confused with Fedora Core) is a modular
architecture built on the principle that interoperability and
extensibility is best achieved by the integration of data, interfaces,
and mechanisms (i.e., executable programs) as clearly defined modules.
Fedora is a digital asset management (DAM) architecture, upon which
many types of digital library systems might be built. Fedora is the
underlying architecture for a digital repository, and is not a
complete management, indexing, discovery, and delivery application."

Directly quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fedora_%28software%29

The other Fedora's web site is at http://www.fedora.info/. They're
currently Fedora 2.2.

See also http://www.techworld.com/news/index.cfm?fuseaction=displaynews&NewsID=687
concerning the naming conflict  in 2003 - and the other Fedora's prior use.

This probably needs to be reviewed by legal counsel, as IANAL.
