I just wanted to post a quick status update on the renaming of the core JBoss Application Server project. As you all know, we asked for the community to send in their suggestions for a new name a few weeks back. We were overwhelmed with the number of names we received (well over 1500!) With the benefit of hindsight this shouldn't have been a surprise, but the amount of names we received were a lot more than we expected. Unfortunately this has had an impact on our timescales. Whereas originally we thought that we'd be putting up the more popular names for a community vote by now, that hasn't been possible because we have had to go through these names and check them against trademark infringements etc. This takes a lot of time, proportional to the number of names we received and we're only just drawing that phase to a conclusion. So what this means is that rather than announce the results of the vote at Devoxx next week, we'll be announcing the names that we're going to vote on. At this stage we're looking at a voting period of a few weeks and that then takes us into the Christmas holidays, so we'll probably make the final announcement early in 2013.
