With Fedora 12 just a few days from release it is time to begin the
naming process for the next Fedora release.
Contributors can make suggestions for the name for Fedora 13 by visiting
and following the instructions.
Remember there needs to be an "is-a" link between the name Constantine
and the name you suggest and this link must be different than all
previous links used to connect Fedora release names.
Full details of the release naming schedule are available on the above
link but please note than the period for gathering suggestions begins
now and runs through November 16.
So there isn't a lot of time, think up some good names, and get them
added to the wiki.
