Subject Re: [Cava] Suitable name search - choosing a name
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2019 15:09:05 GMT
Jim, I don't read https://incubator.apache.org/guides/names.html to lead
me to believe we are at that stage yet.  I think we want to have
discussions about a provisional name first.  Specifically, "A podling
needs to discover whether a name is suitable."

Regards,
KAM
