Subject [jira] Created: (MESOS-1) Rename all components to be references to Firefly.
Date Wed, 16 Feb 2011 23:13:25 GMT
Rename all components to be references to Firefly.

                 Key: MESOS-1
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: c++-api, java-api, master, python-api, slave, webui
         Environment: Year: 2517; earth-that-was, and all terraformed planets and moons.
            Reporter: Andy Konwinski
            Priority: Critical

Now that Mesos has been accepted into the Apache Incubator, with a thriving community already
forming, it is necessary to set a precedent as to the bold nature of the Mesos development
philosophy and the ambition of the project. Clearly, the only way such statement could be
made is by means of a radical statement in the source code of the project itself. Therefore,
all source code should be re-factored such that variable and class names are sensical references
to Firefly characters or events (see:[1].
Firefly, being a commonly admired story of the existing development team, embodies the high
impact, free spirit, of the growing team and the project.

Ballad of Serenity:
Take my love, take my land 
Take me where I cannot stand 
I don't care, I'm still free 
You can't take the sky from me 
Take me out to the black 
Tell them I ain't comin' back 
Burn the land and boil the sea 
You can't take the sky from me 
There's no place I can be 
Since I found Serenity 
But you can't take the sky from me...
