    Status of name

    By the way... haven't heard back from Canonical's trademark office about the name Ubuntuzilla. I doubt they'll object to it if they approved Ubuntu Christian Edition, but it'd be nice to get the official okay.

    I'll update this thread when I get it.

    yes, it would be nice to hear from them one way or the other (preferably not the other). we will just keep on using the Ubuntuzilla name, and if they end up coming back to us with a "no", we can just come up with another one, and "rebrand" all our materials (since there aren't that many of them).

    It's been a week. Do you want to email them and see what's up? Should I?

    hmm... well i guess a week is a pretty long time in the email world. since you sent them the original message, maybe you'd send them a little follow-up, asking "hey, did you guys receive my email, what's up" type of thing.

    but if you think it would be better coming from me, then i'll send it (just as long as we don't both send it and flood their inbox - not that 2 emails is a flood...)

    Yeah, I'll send a follow-up.

    Still no word from them. Is this kind of response time typical?

    hm, no clue, since i have never had to contact these guys before...
    maybe ubuntu-geek is the person to ask about the typical response time from ubuntu trademarks department, since he's the one who recommended to do it in the first place...?

    I asked ubuntu-geek, who said response times are typically one to two weeks, not a month, so he suggested I contact Jane Silber directly, and I have.

    If I get a response, I'll let you know.

    Still no word from Jane about our appeal to keep ubuntuzilla. I think we should just consider doing an entirely different name altogether--one that neither employs Ubuntu nor Mozilla in its name.

    Would it be silly to do some kind of acronym like OBIS (Official Build Installation Script)?
