Hi Edgar,

> In my opinion, these three names sound awful.

Completely agree ! Terrible. Why not something very easy like CFabric ? (Oh
no it starts with bad letter "c" ;-).

>  Maybe we could negotiate with Juniper ...

Exactly proposed the same few months back (when this all started to
surface). Got back bunch of unicasts from J that this is impossible to
negotiate - the internal decision has been made.

I actually still do not understand the real reason: LF/Community project
name is: OpenContrail. Juniper commercial name is: Contrail. Completely
different words/names. What's wrong with keeping it as it was named day one
?

Otherwise looking at the three alternatives provided it does look like
someone really hard is trying to kill the community version :(

Cheers,
R.
