Subject Re: [Cava] Suitable name search - choosing a name
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2019 18:59:10 GMT
For context Jim is the champion of the Cava proposal.

The point of rough consensus is to bring about strong objections and move past non-votes.
I believe we are at that point, and I will move forward to consider this thread closed with
the name Rainbow.
I will open a pooling namecheck and move to the next step there.

Thanks,

Antoine
