My goal - is to increase my computer skills, dealing with computer professionals, who you (GNU people) represent. I don't want to get involved in political part of the project - just the the development part.

Savannah is a place where we tell free software developers about
our philosophy, so you cannot take the technical part without a bit of the political part. It is very important all Savannah hackers agree on this.

We have different understanding of the word "improper".
In my opinion it is proper for anybody to call his own product any name he wishes as long as it does not interfere with copyright laws.

Yes, but my question is:

If not, what makes you think we cannot encourage people to use the name we think fits better?

They call their product "Linux", fine. We do not and encourage people not to do so as well. We do not have to respect the author's naming policy, especially when it is unfair, as RMS described. Freedom of speech is also discussed here:

Hehe :)
Well, I suppose you agree with my definition, since it is not a point eitheir in your or my favor.
