Sort of. "Beefy Miracle" has been an inside joke going back at least
several releases now. A number of people who like it decided to try
to get a release named after it. They just succeeded. I would have preferred
that they actually tried to get a legitimate connection from a previous
name to "Beefy Miracle", but they took a cheap short cut there that I
think takes away from the naming process.

In the end it isn't really a big deal and might end up getting extra
publicity for Fedora.
