    Development Code Names

    I was just browsing the wiki, and found this document by Mark Shuttleworth;
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DevelopmentCodeNames

    It gives a list of possible code names for future releases and it appears you are allowed to add your own suggestions...

    My favourite in there is 'Crazy Coyote'.

    Eagle sounds quite good.
    Not sure what adjective though.
    Maybe electric...

    I love the Ubuntu names, you may say they are terrible but they catch your eye and i think thats the whole point if not one of them! It definately caught my eye!

    If you don't like them, just call them by their version numbers. (:

    I agree - but surely when the next name is chosen, whoever is responsible (Mark? The Community Council? A general vote?) for choosing it will also spot the really bad choices.

    Having looked through the list, I hope that the decision to follow the alphabet is scrapped, as some of the options after Dapper Drake aren't good - and some of the later options are cool.

    Out of interest, how is it chosen?

    This needs to be revived.

    I thought of the names Precocious Pelikan or 'Mazing Meerkat. Maybe Testy Tapir, we have Breezy, Testy is easy to type and say (as an abbreviation).

    Those these release names don't follow any alphabetical order right? I was trying to figure out the pattern, but I guess there isn't any.
