I think "Apache Jinn" and "Apache Genie" have already been proposed.
Other alternatives could be "Apache Jafar" or "Apache Jasmine" based
on characters from the Disney film featuring the famous genie. (Though
I'm quite sure that "Jafar" and "Jasmine" are trademarked by Disney.
Is that a problem for us?) "Apache Aladdin" would also be nice, but
"Aladdin" is already heavily used.

Would the Jini community be happy with bringing the project in under a
different name? At some point it was mentioned that keeping the "Jini"
name would be the preferred choice. I'd like to advocate using a
different name also from the point of view that there is currently no
exact definition of "Jini", and starting "Apache Jini" would just add
to that confusion.

Are there any other open issues regarding the proposal?
