Is there any packages already in Fedora that will need to be renamed
as a result of this?
There shouldn't be. Due to our long chain of dependencies (along with some
not-yet-upstream code), we have not yet packaged Aeolus Conductor (nee
Deltacloud Aggregator) for Fedora. Given the Fedora timeline, it is
unlikely that we will make it in for F-15, but it is our goal to get the thing
pacakged and included in F-16.
