See for yourself:

Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture (http://www.fedora.info)

Not good.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention. We'll see that Fedora/Red Hat gets notified ASAP. Edit: Rahul just PM'd me this: http://fedora.info/redHat.shtml In other words, it's okay.

Be advised, this is a very old issue already. Don't get excited about it.

Especially when they were using the name first ;)

"What's in a name? That which we call fedora
By any other name would run as fast."

Since this is an already-known situation and handled by Red Hat & Fedora, I'll close the thread. Thanks for being vigilant!
