John and your emails certainly make it clear that this was handled 
within the bounds of democracy within Fedora and with Board/legal 
getting a look.

At this point, all I want to say is if the folks putting out F17 want 
that codename and they are prepared to make F17 good enough to justify 
their choice, all power to them and I look forward to seeing how it 
plays out.
