Re: Cast your vote for the Fedora 10 Codename!

Thanks Stephen, that's constructive. Although I'd still need some convincing, it would at least have a point, plus would have the extra advantage of giving those working on the art more creative freedom instead of being constrained by random wordplay.

I like your logic - if we must have a codename, it at least makes sense to base it around something which has value. Art = highly visible and beneficial to users, promotes Fedora in a positive light. In-jokes = does nothing, possibly causes several negative consequences.
