Subject Re: Podling name search - early or late?
Date Fri, 27 May 2016 18:20:18 GMT
Podling namesearch is essential step that needs to be completed before the
podling graduates. There is no specific guidance, as far as i know, on what
stage of podling you should do it.

That said, it would be better to do this early enough and get approval on
the name. If there is any reason to change name, due to a conflict, it is
better to do it before releases are made and community starts building
around. Name change is always a pain.
