Subject Re: [Cava] Suitable name search
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2019 17:04:57 GMT
If the project is already known as Cava and is looking to move to Apache, I
would recommend starting off as Cava.  I can see that there's already a
presence for it - https://github.com/ConsenSys/cava

However, I can see there's a pretty strong conflict on the name -
https://kava.io/
