We currently have a CentOS category at this site’s top level.
We have an exciting announcement coming tomorrow about another distro, and they’d like space here as well.
I don’t want to have too many top level categories, so I think we should make a new one for, basically, Friends and Relations. In addition to distros, this could be, for example, hardware partners — if they want it, of course (we wouldn’t just set these up arbitrarily).
Right now, Friends and Relations is the only idea I have, but I don’t like it, for two reasons:
I’m was thinking “Ecosystem” but that might be overly broad?
“Neighbors” is good, but I worry that trying to use a metaphor will increase the chance of confusion across cultures and languages. Of the “descriptive” names suggested so far, “Neighbors” is my favorite.
Aleksandra, you may be the only person at Red Hat who is good at naming things.
I like Neighbors (maybe “Fedora Neighborhood”?) best for meaning, but “Fellowship” is perhaps the most fun. I’m worried about assumptions that it relates somehow to an academic appointment. But maybe too worried.
Since this can be changed reasonably easily, I’m going go go with a quick decision. (Until after my Flock session, my capricious whims can be indulged, right?) But, let’s do a show of hands!
Also, I’m planning to move CentOS to this category in a little bit. Existing links should still work and there should be a link at top-level (like the ones for other subcategories). Does anyone think I should announce that more widely beforehand?
