- Do we want to try to retain some following from the old account?
- I think yes!
- Do we want to keep @coreos as the handle?
- I prefer @FedoraCoreOS. We have a bit of a problem with conflating
already and taking advantage of opportunities to minimize that would be ideal.
Also this would prevent any conflict if other "CoreOS" derivatives pop up
- Can we keep followers and rename account?
- I have no idea :). We'd need to flesh out what's possible.
If we renamed coreos to fedoracoreos, we'd still keep the coreos
followers. To get the existing fedoracoreos followers, we'd have to
ask them to follow coreos. Fortunately, there's only 77 of them! :)
As for conflation, there are only two OSes called CoreOS right now --
Fedora CoreOS and RHEL CoreOS, and they both stem from the same
I like the idea of keeping Fedora in the handle, but the shortness is
awful nice, and the name attached to the handle can still be Fedora
Maybe let's get together at some point and try to figure out what our best path
forward is on this.
Thanks for offering!
