== Summary ==

"Fedora" is the name of our project. Our general-purpose Linux distribution is "Fedora Linux". Let's refer to it that way in the OS itself.

== Owner ==

* Name: [[User:mattdm| Matthew Miller]]

* Email: mattdm At fedoraproject.org (bugzilla: mattdm AT redhat.com)

== Detailed Description ==

This change isn't big — it is simply expanding

* <tt>NAME=Fedora</tt> to <tt>NAME="Fedora Linux"</tt>  and
* <tt>PRETTY_NAME="Fedora Linux [##] ([edition or spin])</tt>

in the file <tt>/etc/os-release</tt>.

The short identifier <tt>ID=fedora</tt> will remain the same, so scripted interactions should be unaffected.


== Release Notes ==
Note: Fedora is made of people! When used by itself, the term "Fedora" refers to the Fedora Project. When referring to our work, please use either a specific name like <i>Fedora Workstation</i>, <i>Fedora CoreOS</i>, or <i>Fedora KDE Plasma Desktop</i>; or use <i>Fedora Linux</i> to refer to the OS distribution as a whole.

This doesn't really sound like something that gets included in a software release notes page. Can we have a technical description in the release notes as well please? It would be good to explicitly say that the key changed in the release notes, and the format/structure of the new keys in the file.
