Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Name of the FlexJS Fork
Date Sun, 17 Sep 2017 08:20:18 GMT
I can start the VOTE within 12H cause I don't see anything against. If
someone can start earlier that would be great.

Proposed title:
[VOTE] What should be new project name for proposed fork of FlexJS?

List

Description of VOTE from Harbs.

VOTE itself:

1) Name +1 (Binding)
2) Second Proposal
3) Third proposal

Does it look ok?

Piotr
