Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11) come up with a new project name
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 17:09:32 GMT


Patrick Mueller commented on CB-11:

Quick thoughts/notes on the current names suggested:

too many google hits:

    - 33K hits on google: 
    - association with alcohol? (I don't mind, some might)
    - 1K hits on google:
    - the name of class in Android!!!
    - confusion with Android's ADB!!!
    - not future-proof, touch is a fad ;-)
    - are we specifically trying to avoid "gap"?

> During the transition of the PhoneGap project to Apache, the project was renamed to "Callback",
due to some concerns with the name "PhoneGap".  It seems that "Callback" isn't a great name
either - it's a commonly used term, and so internet searches of "Callback" bring up too many
non-relevant hits.
