Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Weex for Apache Incubator
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2016 13:44:02 GMT
Not long ago we had a thread here about English being the work language on
Apache.

We can't expect projects to check (and change) their name based on such
loose criteria.

I bet a lot of names come "close" to some slang word in some world language.

Bertrand's remark seems reasonable to me:

friendly advice, nothing more.

So there is no incubation-impacting decision to be made here.

Depends on the language. In german, it's close to a slang word for
"masturbation", Not sufficiently close, IMO, to cause problems, but
others may have a different point of view.
