Subject Re: [Cava] Suitable name search
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2019 18:28:32 GMT
First, a heartfelt thank you to all for participating in this discussion.

I am tempted to keep Cava _for now_ given this late feedback, and proceed to proposing the
project.
To be more precise, I recommend we get the project into the incubator with this name. We can
change the name of the project 3 to 6 months in.

We have so far received significant interest from the Apache community and others, and it
looks like we can go from there.

John, good point on this website, kava.io. I note the company is named Kava Labs Inc. and
their GitHub is Kava-Labs.
https://github.com/Kava-Labs
It also looks like their code is in the crypto domain, but more on the interchange/wallet
side and written in Go and TypeScript.
I’ll add them to the list when performing the suitable name search item on Jira.

I am going to give everyone 48 hours to voice strong opinions against this approach.

Cheers,

Antoine
