Subject RE: Blaze and Openness of Standards (was Re: [Proposal] Blaze)
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2006 22:51:00 GMT
I agree that the debate on the name is not a useful discussion. If nobody
else has a problem with the use of proper nouns in general can I suggest
that we move back to discussing the more significant points raised by

Regarding the openness of the standard and its processes, I would like to
reiterate the point Gordon Sim made about treating the protocol standard
separately from the Glasgow implementation. There are several other
organisations involved in the AMQP standard - the organisations and people
who are working on Glasgow are only a subset of the AMQP group.

I personally am in favour of the technical protocol discussions taking
place in public mailing lists, but neither I nor any other member of the
Glasgow project can speak for the AMQP group as a whole. We can put a case
forward for the lists to be made public and the members can vote to decide
whether to adopt that proposal.

If "Apache" is acceptable for the name of this organization then
I see no reason to waste anyone else's time on a rather pointless debate
regarding the appropriateness of naming this project 'Glasgow' or not.

FYI, as a point of historical interest (and it's not that interesting),
purely as a 'comment' on the Microsoft practice of naming their O.S
releases after cities, we named a couple of releases of JavaBeans
'Glasgow' and 'Edinburgh', mostly because Graham Hamilton and I were
from Scotland.
