"In a surprise upset, the Fedora Project has chosen "Verne" for Fedora
16's release name, beating out Beefy Miracle — despite strong support
from former Fedora Project Leaders Paul Frields and Max Spevack.

Despite Spevack's promise to organize a wiener roast at Southeast
LinuxFest 2011 and wear a hotdog hat, the vote came in with Verne ahead
of Beefy Miracle by 542 votes. (Fedora uses range voting, rather than a
simple majority voting system for release names.)"
