A little added twist here. I'd like to give the Fedora Board a chance at culling the list a little bit before sending on to Legal. There were a number of names that made it through the "is a" test and Legal that might not have been the best ideas for naming a release. Add to that the fact that Red Hat has used outside Legal to do the name clearance the last few times and that is a measurable cost both in time and money. The more names we ask to clear the more expensive and longer the delay will be before we have a set to vote upon. So I am asking the Fedora Board to review the list of names that Josh has collected and remove any they deem not acceptable as a Fedora release name before handing it to Legal. (Note, I haven't yet directly talked to the board about this, so I'm just assuming that they'll be on... board... with this.) -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
