Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Weex for Apache Incubator

How can the project name be a problem when "weex" sounds to me like the
very common English word *weeks*?

So unless somebody really plans to veto the incubation proposal due to this
very minor linguistic issue and considering the fact that the project has
some history and is already publicly known under this name I would drop
this issue.
