Okay, maybe we use names of important persons. Like "openSUSE x.y
Kennedy" or "openSUSE x.y Washington" as an example. Of course we can
use "openSUSE x.y Torvalds" or "openSUSE x.y Cox" too.


PS: "openSUSE x.y Kim Leyendecker" is the best choice ;)

Beside the numerical reference we could use people names who made some
contribution for Information Technologies (software, networks, algorithms,
communications, security,etc) So we can honor their merits and made them
visibles. Nobody did that before and openSUSE would be the first.

The only drawback is the flames about who is who. We can name it without
regards how much contribution that person made. It is not a competition just a
way to recognize our anonymous contributors.

Remember is not a mumbering replacement (whatever we do adopt). It is just an
add-on to recognize those people who made a contribution and changed the way
we interact with our machines or communications devices.

What do you think ?
