Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Name of the FlexJS Fork

Yeah no worries Carlos. I’ve been getting the same impression too. I'm totally down to move
with what the team decides.

I think a name change is fine after 3 years when the “migration link” is less important
as most people who want to migrate will have already well underway if not mostly completed.

Just wanted to get my thoughts up there before a [VOTE] thread hits.

Loving your thoughts and insights on the name change and this discussion overall.

If we all already think the JS suffix is a mistake for a robust name, we
should address it now, since it cost many time to get people know and
respect a brand. So stick with xxxJS to change it in three years, is for me
something we shouldn't do at all, IMHO.
