Re: naming discussion for Fedora community grid project (previously aka Fedora@Home)



It turns out that "Turbine" and "Sandman" are taken too. So, John Adams is going to help us out again and get some additional names screened from a legal standpoint.

Hi, we just completed a trademark search on "Sleepwalker," and it turns out that it's already being used for software. So, we're going to have to go with a different name. I've asked for searches on the next highest vote-getters, "Turbine" and "Sandman."

Hi, as a follow-up to my proposal to create a Fedora community grid project (http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2008-March/msg00022.html) and our discussion at fedora-advisory-board regarding naming (http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2008-March/msg00100.html), I asked John Adams and some of the creative people at Red Hat to help us brainstorm names for this project. They did a great job, and I've attached the output of their work. Note that these names are all just suggestions and starting points for conversation.

Please provide input on names. I'll let the conversation go for a week and then put up a consensus vote on 4/4 as to what we will name this project.

Thanks,

Bryan
