It's that time of year again. Time to start the naming process
for the next Fedora release.
To recap on the rules:
1) <NewName> must have some link to Leonidas
More specifically, the link should be
Leonidas is a <blank> and
<NewName> is a <blank>
Where <blank> is the same for both
2) The link between <NewName> and Leonidas cannot be the same as
between Cambridge and Leonidas. That link was "was a ship in the Union navy".
We're repeating the collection process we used for Fedora 11 this
time. Contributors wishing to make a suggestion are asked to go to
the F11 naming wiki page, and add an entry to the suggestion table
The naming submissions are open starting now until May 23. The
rest of the schedule is outlined on the wiki page.
So, put on your thinking caps and come up with some really good
Please remember as you add names to make sure there are at least a
few ways to link *out* of the name. If you find an F12 name that has
something in common with F11, but no other significance, it probably
won't make a good name.
For instance, I see a great name, "Hippocoon," on the list already,
which has no other significance I can find beyond its connection with
F11 (also a Spartan king). That means we can't easily link *from*
Hippocoon to something else for F13, and this name will likely be cut
from the list.
The Board and I are going to have to go through these names manually,
so we do ask that you give us a hand in advance by thinking through
*each* of your name suggestions carefully, according to all the
guidelines on the wiki page. Thanks very much for your help!
