I haven't heard anything officially from anyone about this concern.
This word doesn't necessarily have to be used in marketing, and we can avoid
it if need be. However, I do think it's an important word that is hard to
replace, from an internal-to-Fedora messaging point of view. We are talking
about artifacts that we _produce_ intentionally. I don't think that there's
any real possibility of confusion that we are suddenly going to up and start
trying to sell these things, but it's nice to talk about a process that
_makes certain things_.

So, for the "shows required resources" camp, that could simply mean that
those resources need to include more help for this team too.
