Anything else I should add to the list above?

"Mandriva style variation" or "deterministic old school":
YY.counter (2 digit year, counter starts at 0)

The next release could be either 11.5 to continue with current
counter or just like magazines do it and go for YY+1 (ie 12.0)
already near the end of the year.
Advantage: 1:1 compatible with current rpm macros

Please make one concrete proposal - or two - following my example above.

So,  let me add the following to my list:
"Old school /Mandriva variation": YY.counter (starts at zero)
Next release is: 11.5 (otherwise this won't work)
Following releases: 12.0, 13.0, 13.1, 14.0, 15.1

thanks,
Andreas

I said this last time, why change. We are openSUSE we aren't the others.

My vote is on 12.0.

Names are good for project names, but no will take us serious will use
Sci-Fi Names. Might as well call it project Mickey Mouse.

We shouldn't change our naming aways, we should just vote on either
naming 12.0 or 11.5. It a bit late in the game.

I am old school.
