I agree. I took the liberty of changing the subject
of this thread.

Recently i tried to summarise the various discussions
on this topic.

See the page:
"Choosing names for ASF projects"
http://www.apache.org/dev/project-names.html

I have passed it by the legal-discuss mail list,
but only received some general comments so far.
