Fedora 18 Might Be A Frankfurter Or Spherical Cow
After Red Hat Legal caused a delay in the Fedora 18 code-naming process, the list of possible code-names for this "Beefy Miracle" successor have been narrowed down to eight. As expected by now, all of the names are quite peculiar and the Fedora board is trying to decide whether to even continue this code-naming process.
Toshio Kuratomi shared on the announce list that Fedora contributors can now vote for one of these eight F18 potential code-names that were narrowed down and cleared legal review. Fedora 18 will be out later in the year to succeed Fedora 17, which carries the well known codename by now of Beefy Miracle.
The eight choices for the Fedora 18 codename include:
- Ketchy Ketchup
- Pop Soda
- Spherical Cow
- Tandoori Chicken
This isn't a late April Fools' Day... This really is the Fedora 18 code-name list. Personally my vote is behind Frankfurter for at least being a half-way satisfactory codename. Fedora 17 Beta, the Beefy Miracle is expected to be released by the end of May.
