seems like the discussion steered to the phase of no return to the
reasonable output, also it stalled - so we (as a Board) would like
to push it forward.
I think the best idea for now is try to get interested people to
meet together, to check if there's real demand for the change and
if so, to start with the real proposals to create a new process.
I created Doodle poll - the next two weeks, I can add more option,
just it's not very user friendly. Feel free to vote and we will

At the last Board Meeting, the Board looked at the poll results
whether people felt like continuing to name releases. The results
to show that many people do like having a name associated with Fedora
releases. However, the discussion before and after has shown there
a desire to improve upon the current method of selecting the names.
The Board decided that it would be worthwhile to come up with a new
procedure for selecting the name for the Fedora 19 release and beyond
attempt to solve some of the issues that have been brought up. The
is looking for volunteers who would like to do two things:
(1) Answer the following questions:
* What benefits does the Project get from the current release naming
* What changes do people want to see in a revised process?
(2) Come up with at least one proposal and analyze it according to
answers to the previous questions.
If anyone is interested in coming to a weekly meeting to work on
please feel free to contact me. If anyone would like to champion
please contact me ASAP so I know whether there is someone else who's
to champion this or if I need to lead the effort.
I've put up a wiki page that tries to summarize the answers to the
questions that I've seen circulated on the advisory-board mailing
list and a
link to the only proposal I currently know of (mizmo's proposal to
a single theme for all of the new Fedora releases).
