I think there is a difference in perspectives rather than lack of
understanding.  You are looking at it from a developer perspective  -
their project, let them do whatever they like but changing the name of a
package manager is a extremely intrusive change for all users and
commercially supported customers of RHEL down the line and the ripple
effects are enormous.  We are talking about a ton of documentation that
needs to be updated etc. This change shouldn't be done without very careful
deliberation and substantial justification.  The API changes or code being
rewritten isn't something that users care about at all.  Some options being
changed MAY cause some bug reports isn't enough of a reason to do this
IMO.  The notion that such bug reports will consume one hour every day for
the development team is just a wild speculation.  FWIW,  I will volunteer
to explain to users that this is a different project that choose to use the
same name in all such bug reports.  Please feel free to reassign them to
