Last name for VL v5.8 was "Gold"
Please no. We had a lengthy names discussion already: http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum1/index.php?topic=8512.0QuoteLast name for VL v5.8 was "Gold"That "name" means pretty much the same as "final".
*No Release Names: This isn't color war so let's keep it simple with V5, V6, etc. or at the most Vector Update 5, Vector Update 6, etc.
Personally, I detest those cutesy names that Ubuntu uses. Just give me the version number so I know where it is in the string of releases.
I think we should pick one from a "family or class" we could maintain in the future fot other releases. Is important to keep some consistence. For example, since "Gold" was the name of 5.8 std, we could pick other metal or a rock for soho, may be lagagnon could help us I like "Mercury"
Gold is good. We could just stick with Gold for final releases.... Alpha, Beta1, Beta2, RC1, RC2, ..., GOLD!When a version makes gold you know it's good Good as gold!
