I have a slightly different suggestion.
How about the EMO takes over from here? We are going to have to
review these names for trademark, marketing and other issues. It is not as
simple as just running a popularity contest J
So I suggest that the EMO takes a look at both of those names

Thanks for the
applause :) but don't think we can use our own fatigue to call off a run off
... my concern is that we said we would have one, if there wasn't a clear
majority, and I'd fear some may have based their voting behavior on that.
On the other
hand, if you are saying, that you think the Planning Council should choose
Indigo over Ion even if Ion won in a run-off vote ... well, then that'd be a
different matter. And the PC could vote here on this mailing list if that was

I'm kinda with Doug on this one - I don't think we need a run-off. David
has expended a whole heap of effort in doing the right thing for this
yearly chore (applause for him) and we may as well call a halt.
We could do a PR system next year for Eclipse JimJams :)
