[Interop-dev] Great outcome! Let's decide on a name

Great, naming is moving along!

I would just like to add one observation from my experience when we had
a similar question once in our network.

In open-source the only thing which counts is code. We do not have any
managers, investors or other executives running around and pushing
people in any directions. If you want to be heard: contribute, patch,
code. Everybody stands for him or herself, not for organizations or
communities he or she is in.

So I would like to add that by voting you are also promising that you
personally will contribute code to the project, that you will be working
on it, developing it, testing it. All that. You personally, you who
voted. If you cannot promise that, don't vote. Observe, use, open
tickets, comment, be active in discussions, but don't participate in
decision making. You cannot.

And I am very strict about that. If you cannot stand by your opinion
with code, then sorry, nice to hear you opinion, but you do not count.
Maybe somebody will pick up your idea, your opinion, but if nobody does,
this is it.

So I invite everybody to participate in the project, to give ideas,
suggestions, to help us navigating this ship of many into common
direction, but participate in decision making only if you are committing
yourself to work on the code. Really work. Spend your free time on it.

I hope nobody will take this personally. But it is important to explain
this at the beginning.
