I don't mind, I was just confused by the name. But keeping the name scheme
consistent with what has been done before is good. The only annoying thing I
see is that Ant and Ivy do not use the same meaning behind the names given
to releases: in Ivy the beta we have published are still far from being
release candidates, and may changes still have to be introduced before we
reach the release candidate cycles.
