Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Incubate TMCg2
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2006 20:00:47 GMT

At Merck, the name TMC originally stood for "Tomcat Management Console"  As
the tool set evolved, the ability to manage Apache httpd was added.  The
full name simply was changed to "The Management Console".  The g2 is a Merck
item and should very well be dropped.     We have been evaluating other
names, and I would like to propose "Kowa" 
"An Apache dwelling consisting of a dome shaped frame of cottonwood or other
poles, and thatched with grass. The house itself was termed, Kowa and the
grass thatch, Pi".

I tend to agree that the name isn't very good. TMC is not a very good
choice either - Apache The ... wouldn't really work. It would be nice to
find something more appropriate before starting to create too many
mailing lists.
