Everyone concerned by naming issues might be interested to know that 
name was changed into "Which tool for OSM ?" in user interface and 
documentation. Also, a clear disclaimer was added into the repository 
README about the absence of link with OSMF. I hope this is enough for 
complying with future trademark policy.
