I agree that using the -interest suffix would better describe the intent, and if possible I would suggest that we continue to use that standard instead of creating a new one that is less informative. I'd be happy to help bulk-update issues with redhat-openjdk to redhat-interest if needed. There are 374 in total. azul-openjdk has only been used on five issues so far so that should not be a problem to change.
