Subject [jira] [Commented] (PODLINGNAMESEARCH-1) Establish whether "Apache Rat" is a suitable name
Date Thu, 29 Dec 2011 21:26:30 GMT


Benson Margulies commented on PODLINGNAMESEARCH-1:

The following remark might belong on trademarks@. Not all Apache projects have the ambition
of making a showy name for themselves in the marketplace of ideas. This one, I suspect, particularly
not. Does Foundation policy require a defensible trademark, or merely avoiding infringement
of someone else's?

What about Apache Ratty, leading to a host of 'Wind in the Willows' humor?

> The Rat podling brought together aRat and the Rat plugin tooling aRat for maven. It now
is a suite of small products including rat, whisker, tentacles and eye which perform various
functions to assist auditing, comprehending and verifying releases. This podling hopes to
graduate as a top level project once a suitable top level project name is found.
