Name for a FESCo Successor? Suggestions anyone?

Cross-posting to three lists, but follow-up set to fedora-devel, to not
have the discussion on 3 lists in parallel. But I'm sure mailman will
eat the manual follow up before sending the mail out again :-/ So please
adjust it manually and send your replies *only* to fedora-devel ;-) tia!

Hi all!

FESCo in its yesterday out-of-order meeting agreed to follow the
proposal I posted on fedora-advisory-board (
) to merge the Core Cabal and FESCo into a new committee that handles
the day to day work around the stuff that was formally known as Fedora
Core and Fedora Extras. In other words: we integrate Jesse (aka f13) and
Bill (aka notting) into FESCo (Jeremy is already part of FESCo), merge
the responsibilities of both groups (and thus give it lot more to do).
The Fedora Board will probably discuss the proposal in todays meeting, too.

But one issue is still totally undecided and needs to be solved soon:
What do we call that FESCo and Core Cabal successor? The "E" in FESCo
until now stood for Extras, but soon Extras will vanish due to the
merge. So hat do we want to call it? Suggestions that came up:

FTC -- Fedora Technical Committee

FTT -- Fedora Technical Team

FET -- Fedora Engineering Team

FEDCo -- Fedora Distribution Committee

FESCo -- Fedora Steering Committee


None of the above name suggestions did receive a "yes, that's a really
great idea, I like it, all the people I asked love it, thus go for it"
from the people involved in the discussions. Thus with this mail we'd
like to ask the community for suggestions and its option: "Which of the
above names do you like most or do you have something better in mind
that sounds good, is not to easily confused with other stuff from this
world and roughly describes what the committee does?"


P.S.: For those that missed it, I'm not FESCo's chairmen any more (but
still a FESCo member) since last Thursday -- After doing the job for one
year I felt that it's time for me to hand it over to someone else with
fresh blood and new ideas. Brian Pepple is FESCo's interims chair now
and I'm sure he'll do a great job. Please help him as good as you can --
and always keep in mind: You don't have to be in FESCo or any other
committee to to help improving Fedora!

P.P.S.:Ohh, some backgrounds for the proposed names:

 * FTC -- name clash with Federal Trade Commission. A bit bad, but seems
some people don't care much about that.

 * FTT -- "Failure to thrive (FTT) refers to a baby or child that is not
developing as well as desired."

 * FTT -- Field-Effect Transistor
24 meanings in total on acronym finder

 * FEDSCo "Federal Employees Distributing Company (Co-Op)"
2 meanings on acronym finder

 * FESCO-- Fedora Steering Committee is to easily confused with the
Board, thus probably a no-go

 * 42 -- Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything
