libre-minidisc sounds actually nice (note, it's minidis_c_, not
minidis_k_ as compared to hard dis_k_), but renaming the project would
involve too much of a hassle. The name is already everywhere, on the
project wiki, the mailing list, the git repository and so on. So, I
think we will refrain from doing that for now.
In the end, it affects the name of the source package only anyway, so
it's not a big deal. Most Windows and MacOS users just search and
download the UI application, QHiMDTransfer and don't care it mentions
Linux on the project homepage.
