I abstained from voting on your specific proposal.  I don't think that specific
proposal is actually going to help anything you appear to be really concerned
about.

As I said in the meeting, the underlying motivation of your proposal appeared
to me to be seated in more of a "promote KDE" manner than an actual "call the
Gnome spin Gnome."  In that sense, changing the name of a spin will do nothing
to further promote KDE.

If I am wrong in the underlying intention of your proposal, then I'll happily
(if somewhat pointlessly now) vote after the fact.  However, if I am truly
wrong, then why does the rest of this thread seem to focus so much on KDE,
it's users, and how they are being slighted?

This is why I abstained on the specific proposal.
