Please ask before such changes.
OTOH, if you insist that every sub-project of LinuxBIOS is a project in
itself, we should also have the "GA-M57SLI porting project" etc. Oh, and
headlines like "LinuxBIOS is running Windows XP" would have to be
changed to "ADLO is running Windows XP".
We have established the LinuxBIOS brand with a lot of work. Calling
every single one of our subprojects by its own name is not going to help
our public image at all. This situation is similar to the GNU/Linux
debate and I don't want LinuxBIOS to be in the GNU "nobody mentions us"
