this is by no means the intention of this email. You will note that
this email is also sent to the marketing list, so this is not aimed at
excluded marketing, but rather at getting the conversation started.

We're simply encouraging brainstorming here so that we don't get stuck
later there and have a prominent way of calling the upcoming next
version early in the release cycle (Fedora has already chosen its
codename for F14, too).

I don't recall us already having chosen Cloudberry. It was the
previous codename for v.3, but as you say, we decided to go with
Mirabelle instead since it could have caused confusion.

I personally believe that it only makes sense to chose a name like
Cloudberry if we're able to provide a sufficient amount of
cloud-related features, since we might get otherwise beaten up over

I think this is debatable and I'm certainly not objecting to having
this conversation in the marketing meeting, too. However, this also
concerns the project itself, so I think it's also fair to raise it in
the Sugar on a Stick meeting.
