your position is just a pile of BS. You should know it.
No way would the Board (nor you) allow arbitrary terminology across
projects even if it is "parentheticals" (whatever that means). You
would shoot such project down faster than they could type it out in
the report. Now, you are so darn protective of this project, for all
good reasons, but I think your emotional attachment is clouding your
judgment when you are holding fast to this view that projects (at
least Subversion!) can change the terminology in board reports because
they are too lazy to change.

So, instead of bullying the ASF into accepting Subversion as it is,
without any need to conform any more than it does by 'default', why
not spend a little effort on educating the Subversion community to go
with the flow. How fking hard can that be??
Subversion already got more preferential treatment than it should, all
because of your bullying tactics.
