Fedora 14 Might Be Called Fytnargin

As was reported last month, with development on Fedora 13 winding down for a release in two weeks, planning for Fedora 14 has got underway. One of the first steps taken by the Fedora and Red Hat communities is coming up with a new codename for the next release, for which they have been reaching out to the community for in recent times.

Early Fedora (well, back then, Fedora Core) releases were codenamed Heidelberg and Stentz, among others, but with the community coming up with the names we have been getting more creative like with Fedora 13 being named Goddard. The list of the six candidates for the Fedora 14 codename have been listed this afternoon and they include Fytnargin, Hoppin, Laramie, Laughlin, Mitikas, and Ventnor.

Fedora contributors are encouraged to vote for their favorite. Information concerning the Fedora 14 codenames is available on the Fedora Wiki. Is it just me or is this the worst selection of possible codenames for Fedora yet? Could Fedora 14 really be known as Fytnargin? (It's apparently a Russian mountain.)

The official codename for Fedora 14 will be announced next week.
