I noted that a lot of name suggestions were failing the "Is a" test
this morning.  I've added comments to the naming table on the wiki to
names which don't have that link.  If you have suggested a name,
please look for a note there.  If the Board is unable to determine the
"is a" link, the name won't proceed to legal (and from there to voting
as a potential Fedora 18 code name).

Also, please make the "is-a" linkage as narrow as you can.  For
instance, I put down a lot of suggested links like "Beefy Miracle is a
food and Potato Chips are also a food"  If you can narrow down the
food category like: "Beefy Miracle is a food served at summer
barbeques and so are Potato Chips" that is better.  Why?  Because it
will leave open more ways to form "is-a" links for future Fedora Code

Thank you
