Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Etch
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2008 16:58:06 GMT
the discussion about names seems somewhat done. it is easy to get the
impression from the volume that there is a demand for name change. in
my opinion there isn't. certainly names is a rich topic and the discussion
would never die down on it's own because it is so much fun. it's a wonder
anything gets done...

here is a summary of who's responded to our proposal and an indication
of the topic.


of the people that mention name (8), only 3 are voting:

henning: concerned about confusion with debian. only says we need to be 
careful and explicit.
niall: wants to see the q resolved. likes the name, sees no real objection.
niclas: conflict with debian; only worries about it.

of the rest, most like the name etch and seem to be just "tossing the 
ball around".

the main other concern is that of confusion with Debian Etch vs. Apache 
Etch. There
was some discussion about whether etch could get to the top of the 
google list.

so, can we put the name question to bed? it was suggested that the 
podling could/should
decide the issue for itself, later. is there a problem with that?

are there any other concerns about the proposal which aren't addressed?
