Since the review request[1] was marked a FE-Legal because of a potential
trademark concern[2], upstream has agreed to rename the package[3]. Can
you please take 5 minutes and have a look at the new name(s) upstream is
thinking of. It would help in keeping the review going. 

Quoting upstream's latest comment[3]:

> hello.
> Some time has passed since the last comment about renaming the project, and I
> settled on a new name. I'd like to get Redhat's legal team approval if possible
> before actually renaming the project.
> The name that I would like to use is "Scout", after the character "Jean Louise
> 'Scout' Finch" in the book "To kill a mockingbird". I have searched for
> trademarks with this word on the uspto.gov site and I didn't find anything that
> seems to be directly using this name.
> Would this name have the approval of the legal team? If so, I'll rename the
> project right away and packaging can then continue without the fear of future
> legal/acceptation problems.    

Thank you.
