Subject [jira] [Commented] (PODLINGNAMESEARCH-11) Establish whether "Apache WInk" is a suitable name

Shane Curcuru commented on PODLINGNAMESEARCH-11:

Searching for "wink software" is more appropriate than "wink open source".  From the trademark
point of view, what informed consumers are looking for is a software product that does something
useful for them.  The fact that it's software, and does REST server/client stuff is most relevant;
the open source aspect is much more secondary.

The only thing that potentially concerns me is Winktoolkit, since that talks about being a
web client as well.  However since they are in JavaScript and are quite specific for mobile
platforms, and Apache Wink Client is Java-ish and is really just the other half of the Server
bit, I think that's OK, although I'd like to ask for other comments to see if anyone else
has a question.

The Wink presentation software is a clearly different kind of application.  End users looking
to - perhaps - record screenshots of their web server's behavior would not be likely to ever
confuse that Wink with Apache Wink - which will mostly be used by developers writing those
