Subject Re: ARIA TOSCA Project Proposal
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2016 18:03:35 GMT
Daniel, thanks for the feedback! I think that picking a completely unique
name for a project these days has become impossible. Other names we were
considering when we chose ARIA were in use in other places as well. There
is no ASF project that uses the name ARIA(yet:), and nothing in the
orchestration space named ARIA. Also while working with potential users of
the project the past several months no one bought up wai-aria, nor any of
the other existing things named aria, so we should be okay.

Thanks,
Arthur
