Hello.

perl-Data-Tumbler is included Fedora repo.

But "TUMBLR." or "TUMBLR" is trademark.

I think that this is trademark problem, It is non-free.
I suggest that resolve trademark problem.

Thanks.

I cannot see any "TUMBLR" string (regardless of the letter case) in the package perl-Data-Tumbler. Can you show me the offending usage?

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2016-12-15 08:28:54 UTC
Tumbler is a word with many meanings in the English language:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tumbler

I don't think there's any chance of confusion between the use of "Tumbler" in this package and the differently-spelt name of the microblogging platform.

So I don't plan to do anything about this unless Fedora Legal says I need to do so.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2017-03-20 17:44:23 UTC
I agree. The likelyhood of confusion here is practically zero. Closing.
