Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Weave for Apache Incubator
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2013 23:18:02 GMT
Regarding the naming issue, we understand that Weave may be problematic, so
we did a little bit of searching for a new name. Here is a list of name
candidates in order of our preference:

- Tartan
- Sisal
- Twill

Do these ring a bell or raise concerns? A quick search did not bring up any
open source projects named Tartan, but there appear to be some non-Apache
projects named Sisal and Twill. I am not sure how unique a project name has
to be, it is really hard to find something that does not exist at all...
