Hi all,

I agree with Paul.  Our downstream distributions do not have the same
constraints as us.  If we want to to stay "universal", we need to send a strong
message that short, common dictionary words are better be avoided in the
interest of all.

Also, we should not favor software written in the context of our downstream
distributions, compared to sofware written independantly, otherwise the take
home message will be that if one project wants to own a dictionary word in
Debian, they just have to use it downstream first.

Have a nice day,
