Subject Re: [ALL][VOTE] Rename Commons Sanselan to Commons Image
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2011 15:26:44 GMT
Hi Gary,

I have the feel to express my +1 vote but have Christian's similar
worries - not sure, but maybe once [vote] successes, there should be a
resolution... anyway I'm not expert on that field, I just voted
following my sentiments.

PS I thought the name comes from joining 2 French words "sans"
(without) and "élan" (momentum) that's the only meaning I can find,
French people may can confirm :)

best,
-Simo
