Perhaps we should have a guideline of only using the word "Fedora" to
refer to the distro.

I'm sorry, you must have me confused with someone else.

I was merely pointing out that we are using the same word to mean
different things, and this creates confusion.  

This confusion is happening in this thread, not made any easier because
everyone keeps asking what "Fedora" means.  It doesn't mean anything, it
means several things, and what can we do about that?
