As Norwegian I should not really disagree on that name -- but Thor is
already the name of lots of things, including at least two EU projecst (Open Research interoperability) (Oceanography!)

Apache Heyerdahl..? says:

(>200 meaning it is not a protected surname in .no :)

And 111 businesses - just in Norway - several doing IT stuff:

But we can discuss the proposal even if it has to change its name -
that's OK to sort in the very beginning (but is very preferably
community-wise to agree before actually moving to the Incubator).

I think it sounds like an interesting proposal but wonders which
consumers (and potential developers) it is targeting - I wonder about
the strong link to Hortonworks and Hadoop -- is Concur relying on
Hadoop, Hadoop might use Concur, or can Concur be used with many
things, including Hadoop?

I see is already using
org.apache.raft (and before org.apache.hadoop.raft) as a package name
- I find this approach for proposals a bit concerning trademark-wise;
but then I didn't look closely if this started as a fork/pull request
for Hadoop or similar?
