The Name

Seems the naming conversation for the new Indiana distribution is coming to fruition --  Project Indiana and the OpenSolaris name. It will be called "OpenSolaris Developer Preview" and it's coming soon. Cool. Even more importantly, though, is Ian's suggestion that everyone "continue working together as a community to develop a set of branding guidelines so that other distributions may also use the OpenSolaris brand...."

Comments:

Not only that, we should have OpenSolaris very soon, the directory in which it will be housed has been created at http://dlc.sun.com/osol/indiana/downloads/20071031/

Any time now!

err, i was not aware the comunity was asked whether they were ok or not with the name, shouldnt the OGB have a saying in this? i think whoever is in charge of indiana right now is rushing things a little too much, i hope they just called it indiana for the time being, at least till we reach some kind of agreement

Nacho ... I think we are making some progress on the naming issue now. I agree that there was not enough consensus around using the name OpenSolaris for Indiana, and we are working that through now as a community. And the OGB is very much involved too. We'll get it straight. :)
