I agree, we are not in a hurry, let's not just vote and the majority
wins. Let's discuss.
Voting is good to see which are the options where there is more consensus.

Bytheway Mitar weren't you the one that reminded us to use the titanpad
to put names on? So I guess Mario was intending that for voting. He
might have been simply following your suggestion, I don't think (and
hope) he meant to vote in a "democratic" way where the majority rules.

The thing I want to understand is the following:

Are we developing something new? Or are we developing nodewatcher?
In the first case the name should be new, in the second the name should
