Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Apache Chemistry
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2009 01:15:28 GMT
There seem to be quite a few Java projects that relate to Chemistry -
what if Apache later wants to create its own Chemistry project?

Although the name Chemistry is quite neat, I think it would be a waste
(as well as confusing) to use it for something totally unrelated.

If the abbreviation CMIS becomes well-known, then Apache CMIS would be
a better choice.
