Re: [Fedora-marketing-list] Name for future Fedora distribition?



I still think that "just Fedora" works great, or maybe Fedora GNU/Linux (yeah, I know, the GNU part... And sounds so much like Debian). At any rate, why would the distribution have to change? Yes, Extras and Core merged, but that does not mean that all packages will be available in the distributed media or images. I think that maybe keeping the same selection of packages for the typical media images would be best and have as an option install any of the additional packages at install time from Anaconda with Yum, so at installation they would still be available, and maybe have a separate set of media images which would include all the packages and span many, many more packages.

It could even be done so, that it would be possible to have different "installation images" in regards of a "standard installation" (meaning the same way it has been done, five CD images, one DVD image), a small "Internet installation" image, which will feature a base system and most basic components (not to say core :D) and from which it would be possible to fetch any thing extra off the internet, very convenient for a lot of users, especially those with broad band access with the convenience of a single CD image to download, (and it could even be a small image), the caveat is the users REQUIRE Internet access.

I don't think a major change in the name or anything would be strictly necessary. For the next release I'd be happy with just "fedora 7"
