Description acount closed by user 2004-09-22 10:50:42 EDT
time ago in a fedora mailing list (devel list maybe) people 
complained about the *redhat* in the packages names.
And all packages were renamed from redhat- to system- except:

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-19 06:08:58 EDT
I see no real reason to rename them. Its just a lot of work which
might introduce bugs etc. Its not like anyone types these are app
names like with the system-config-* packages.
Comment 2 acount closed by user 2004-10-19 16:41:21 EDT
this is against fedora devel, aka rawhide. So it's better to leave it
for FC-4.

Anyway, time ago people complained about _redhat_ in the name of a lot
packages. Remember that Fedora is comunity based and it's possible to
sell it, to modify it.... and "Red Hat" is a trademark !
And now only there are four packages with this 'bug'.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-20 14:13:21 EDT
As long as it contains a Red Hat trademark, not sure that renaming it
really helps.
Comment 4 acount closed by user 2004-11-06 12:59:12 EST
This was discussed long time ago in fedora-devel. And someone at
redhat took the decision to rename "redhat-" to "system-" but these
four packages were forgotten.
