The name is something else to consider, should we just use Leap for the open source builds of SUSEs ALP products, should we do something else entirely? Given that SUSE is using names of alps as release code names I chose to do something similar but different, This project is meant to be less extreme then a trip up into the alps, more like a relaxing picnic or stroll through the hills so this prototypes codename is Grassy Knoll because it sounds cool and maybe I've been playing too much dwarf fortress. Either way, it may not be the best name for the project long term.
Thanks for the update! This really sounds interesting and I'm looking forward to trying it and putting it to work.
But one comment about "Grassy Knoll". In the US context, the Grassy Knoll is important to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Just mentioning the phrase to older Americans will bring back many bad memories and associations. Perhaps a name without such negative baggage might be in order? Try googling "grassy knoll" to see what I mean. There's even a memorial park with that name, on the Grassy Knoll in Dallas Texas.
Yeah, obviously i'm Australian and none of that showed up in my quick search for alternate words for hill and I remember it from Fantasy / Video Game context. We will use a different hill related name (or maybe something else for the next prototype. Suggestions welcome :-)
