It is hostile in the sense that nobody in Linus-git went to GNU-git
to ask permission before using the same name for a whole different
project.  I could be wrong, maybe somebody did get permission.

To be clear, I'm not accusing Debian of a hostile takeover, I'm
accusing upstream of a hostile takeover.  I'm accusing Debian of
abetting it.
