None of these links explains the actual choices, they just explain how
the games works and what the connections are.
Explaining the *name* doesn't mean to explain that Heidelberg is a City

While I have to admit that the connection is a little week this time,
the name itself is easy to explain. It is more related to Fedora than
any other name before.
