Tomas, thanks for this sum up, I tried to think more about all this and 
I agree with Joe as result ;-)

I think we can have 'deltacloud' in repo name, for all reasons you 
pointed out. Since we haven't made any official announcement to mailing 
list yes (just the community call), I think there is still some time to 
change the name. Also changing name, will not destroy the history for 
the project (closed pull requests, etc..)

But as Joe mentioned, I would prefer deltacloud-core for various reason. 
One reason is that 'deltacloud' organization on Github could be an 
umbrella for the upcoming 'deltacloud-lib' (and other demo-ware/projects 
(deltacloud-workers, etc...)), so I think instead of just 'deltacloud', 
we should call it 'deltacloud-core' (which is the official gem name 

So +1 to rename, but I would prefer 'deltacloud-core' as the new name.

PS: We can still keep 'core' repo that will link to 'deltacloud-core', 
so if somebody watch the community call, he will be pointed out to the 
'right' repository.
