Re: [tdf-discuss] New name
I'm afraid that although we're still waiting for Oracle's position on the
trademark, we already have had a full competition and vote on the name.
And we also found out, that names are never a very consensual thing. So
we'll stick to this one, unless Oracle agrees to give the trademark...

I don't like the name LibreOffice.
But I don't think the time is right for a new name yet.
The community behind the office suite have to be established both
concerning the existing office suites based on OpenOffice.org - do they
become a part of this or will the be on the sideline. And concerning which
kind of organisation it will become.
Oracle has not stated if they will give the rights to the name
OpenOffice.org to us so the name could be kept - or we really have to
continue with LibreOffice or find a new name.
If the work on a new name should be started then we have to set up a list
of guidelines for such name - and keep the work on the new name on a closed
mailing list so others wont registrate the name and domain names before we
had the time to do it ourselves.
And open competition to get more name suggestions from everyone could still
be in the open - but not the work on selecting the name.
I would be interested to be in such a workgroup.
The most enjoyable greetings
