Default Two questions / bugs / issues with Fedora 17 Desktop, minor but kinda important for user experience

1) who decided that system-config-date is to be installed by default and given the confusing (for new users) system-config-date as a name in the menu?
From IRC:
<adamw> elad661: it's called 'system-config-date' because it was previously called Date and Time. see the problem with that?

<elad661> yes, I do
<elad661> but I think we could either remove it (since gnome's control panel provides the functionality) or find a better name.
<elad661> we probably need it for firstboot, so removing the desktop file might be a good idea


2) why is "remote desktop viewer" installed by default? I thought gnome boxes provides this functionality now.

Looking at the desktop archives to make sure my message got into the
list, I noticed it was split in a strange way. I don't know who's
fault is that, gmail or mailman.
To make sure you all got this message properly, here is a copy of it.

Sorry.
