Description Bill Nottingham 2013-09-10 12:18:33 EDT
Description of problem:

As discussed via e-mail. Filing here for tracking.

So, crazy idea:

Adds a \S escape to agetty, to pretty name from /etc/os-release.
We're working on some code for flexible product branding for RHEL, and while
we can rewrite /etc/os-release on branding changes easily, having to rewrite
/etc/issue and friends is a bit ugly.
