FWIW, I did see 2 requests to rename 'Linux' on to
GNU/Linux. My official position is 'people use that field?!?' (except
crazy GIMP developers; which is the only reason you can still see the
field). If that needs changing, do it upstream. I do not care what it is
called as long as I do not have to patch Bugzilla for it (and repeat
that for every upgrade).
