The process is *nothing* like a contest, is a gathering of name 
proposals from the community, which will be reduced to a short list by 
the Board, then checked by Red Hat's legal team and the few remaining 
will be put for a community vote.

The proposals are open for the entire community, please submit your 
proposal to the naming thread (the people in charge to not read our list).

No chance, the naming process takes a lot of time, especially the legal 
clearing, so the proposals have to be submitted really fast.

GDM is not themed by us.

Ideas for the name? There is a constraint: it has to be linked in some 
way with Cambridge, and the link should *not* be "is a city" (the link 
between Cambridge and Sulphur). That is the tradition.
