Small correction. The TC had not indicated that Ceilometer could be
named "OpenStack Telemetry" and Heat could be named "OpenStack
Orchestration". We formally asked[1] the board to allow (or disallow)
that naming (or more precisely, that use of the trademark).


We haven't got a formal and clear answer from the board on that request
yet. I suspect they are waiting for progress on DefCore before deciding.

If you need an answer *now* (and I suspect you do), it might make sense
to ask foundation staff/lawyers about using those OpenStack names with
the current state of the bylaws and trademark usage rules, rather than
the hypothetical future state under discussion.
