It is once again time to choose the release name for the next Fedora
release.  Potential names will be accepted for consideration beginning
September 13th (in other words, NOW) through September 10.  Please
submit your best ideas to the Fedora wiki at the address below:


Please note that you *must* follow the instructions and guidelines at
the page listed above if you want your name to be considered.  For
instance, there must be an "is-a" link between the name Verne (from
Fedora 16) and the name you suggest. That link must be different than
previous links for Fedora release names.  Also, we ask that you please
conduct the required searches for brand and trademark names that might
cause us problems.

Read the full guidelines at the wiki page listed above, where you can
also find full schedule details for the release naming process.

For those of you interested in reviewing the history of Fedora release
names, there is an appropriately named wiki page for doing so at

Please try to pick a name that is fun and creative. Don't delay... do
it today! We all want an awesome name for Fedora 17!
