Subject Re: [VOTE] Accept Mysos into the Apache Incubator
Date Sat, 30 May 2015 20:05:53 GMT
It looks like the project already has a Twitter account and a logo [1].

One thing to keep in mind is how difficult it can be to re-brand something after a brand has
been established.

IMHO, it would be best to figure out a viable name as early as possible to avoid having to
re-brand later in order to graduate. Based on this and other threads, it seems entirely possible
that the board may not accept "Mysos" as a TLP name.
