This software name is "archlinux-keyring".
but "Arch Linux" is trademark.

Arch Linux Trademark Policy is not allowed commercial use.


I think that this is non-free and trademark problem.

I sent a mail to trademarks@archlinux.org asking for a clarification.

Subject: Re: use of "archlinux-keyring" as package name in Fedora RPM


As the name of the git repo is "archlinux-keyring", this doesn't violate
anything related to our trademark policy. You are simply packaging
something we supply by the name we use.


So everything seems in order.
