Hear ye, hear ye! Attention, all Fedora fans and release naming enthusiasts:

The time has come once again to choose the name for the next
release of Fedora. Potential names will be accepted for consideration
beginning March 3rd (in other words, NOW) through March 10.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Name_suggestions_for_Fedora_16

Please note that you *must* follow the instructions and guidelines at
the page listed above if you want your name to be considered. For
instance, there must be an "is-a" link between the name Lovelock (from
Fedora 15) and the name you suggest. That link must be different than
previous links for Fedora release names. Also, we ask that you please
conduct the required searches for brand and trademark names that might
cause us problems.

Read the full guidelines at that page, where you can also find full
schedule details for the release naming process.

For those of you interested in reviewing the history of Fedora
release names, there is an appropriately named wiki page for doing so:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/History_of_Fedora_release_names

Be fun. Be creative. Help pick out an awesome name for Fedora 16! I am
looking forward to your suggestions.

-Robyn

Hmmmm.

Two possibilities come immediately to mind:

1) Lovelock is a town in Nevada, and also the name of a Sci-fi book by Orson Scott card, in which the named "hero" yearns for freedom. So also is the (graphic) novel/movie "Serenity."

2) Lovelock (Speedway) is the name of a race track. So is Talledega.

Okay, I'll get it out of the way: "chastity belt". There, it's said. Now, let's get on to some decent names.

As much as I like Talledega... nope I'd rathing sit in Rockingham. Anyway I'll vote for Serenity because I'm certain to repeat the word many times. May as well at login to.

Ok. I'm game.

Let's see ...

Ok. If Lovelock is a chastity belt, then as I recall, Mrs. Emma Peel looked quite attractive wearing one. Therefore, "Avenger." <..:eek:..>

Lovelock, Laughlin, and Goddard are all towns in Nevada. Are we to discontinue a theme? How about Hawthorne, also in Nevada?

Dan

Stick with Nevada town names?! Yeesh! I hope not. I refuse to run a release named Gabbs, or Deeth Wells! Never much liked Hawthorne either. Always seemed like a fellow should really tiptoe around there. <..:eek:..>

Or Reno, for that matter. Which is, as they say, so close to Hell that you can see Sparks! <..:p..>

Well, I defer to your greater knowledge of that part of the world.

Who's Robyn Bergeron?

I should have clicked on the link. Maybe she knows James Lovelock, the inventer of the microwave oven? Or has used one? We could name it after her.

Gets my vote - however I never got the point of the rules ...

XXX is a dum*ss Fedora name.
So is YYY....

A Lovelock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_padlocks) is a romantic symbol and so is a Valentine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Antique_Valentine_1909_01.jpg)

What about Gaia?
James Lovelock is an independent scientist, environmentalist and futurologist who lives in Devon, England.
GAIA is the name of a theory formulated by Lovelock (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia_hypothesis) and states that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system, like Fedora is formed by many components that interacts...

But this doesn't follow the "is - so is" rule....

EDIT oopss... already added by someone in the meantime I was adding this post.... :-p

edit: the one i found didn't have any other "is-a" relationship going forward, so it was pretty bad... i'll keep looking.

In keeping with Bob's suggestion ... and befitting the current relationship with the people at Gnome ... how about Trollop? (Round heeled ... or otherwise. Your choice)

Serenity would be good. On a side note, 3 of last 4 named release (including F15) start with L (Leonidas, Laughlin, Lovelock), Maybe we should we can create something like Lovelock is started with alphabet 'L' and so is Levantine :rolleyes:

Lovelock a long lock of hair worn on the forehead and so is "Shendi". (It's a marathi word that means a long lock of hair.)

Didn't you see the message saying it had been moderated?
Don't bother wasting our time messaging us with crap like this as it isn't urgent and can wait till we clear the moderation queue.

@leigh123linux's Tht's kind of rude sir don't you think?
I might've mistakenly not seen it sorry for that but still.

Lovelock is a valley in Nevada.
Linus Torvalds (the creator of Linux in case you've been living under a rock since 1991) lived in the Northwest. Therefore, I think it would be fitting to name it after a valley in the Northwest: Willamette or Tualitan (I think I spelled that right).
So, Lovelock is a vally and Tualitan is a valley (or Willamette).

Lovelock is a hair style and Ringlet is also a hair style.

You know what ?
I first thought "Beefy Miracle" was the biggest brain fart in history, but now it's growing on me.
I actually want "Beefy Miracle" to be the winner now! Am I going mad?
