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.
