oh, sorry, i seem to have misinterpreted it.

well, that _is_ true. allthough i would argue that if people know media policy 
(because they can find that on the wiki), it would be different, _IF_ they are 
noobish enough not to really understand paths...

(difference between acquiring information or acquiring a 'skill')

ok, so much for clarity -_-' .

in short: let rpmdrake show this short description (which looks more or less 
like the current name, but clearer) where the current name is now and i'm ok 
with this proposal.
