Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Name of the FlexJS Fork
Date Sun, 17 Sep 2017 05:54:04 GMT
To be clear, none of my findings are deal killers for the proposed name.

BOJA is the stock symbol for Bojangles Inc.  A chain of fried chicken
restaurants.
Wiktionary defined variants of boja [1].  What did you say you thought it
meant?
Boja has 163 matches on Github, but I didn't see an exact match but didn't
check all.
https://github.com/mudroljub/bojanka is "Simple JavaScript application for
drawing in HTML5 canvas"

-Alex
