Subject [jira] [Commented] (PODLINGNAMESEARCH-31) Establish whether "Apache DeltaSpike" is a suitable name
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 12:01:19 GMT


Mark Struberg commented on PODLINGNAMESEARCH-31:


For having all on record. 
DeltaSpike entered incubation in December 2011. Before we came up with the name 'DeltaSpike'
we had about 30 other candidates. 
We checked the following points back then, and I also checked them once again today:

* no existing trademarks: trademarkia and shows no registered trademark
* no existing software project exists with this name: searched via ohloh,, google,
* a domain name is registered to a domain reseller but is apparently not used
(screenshot of the page attached) . Thus no problem.
* the name is principally trademarkable. No natural name, no real-live object, etc

> DeltaSpike is a portmanteau of Delta (for change) and Spike (for 'an abrupt sharp increase').
 From the ASF perspective, it is a library of reusable CDI extensions and components.
