Perhaps what's left then is next to nothing. Just some "docs" whatever

the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers has a 2018-09 version that
supports all the cool stuff in the Eclipse Jarkata 2018-09 stuff; okay,
I'm dreaming a little. :-P But I expect that in the end the public will
care about updates to their favorite tool, technology or framework, and
about what's new and noteworthy, and won't give a hoot about what we
call out train.

And "name:" here is used what context?
So what do we do with the name?
Indeed, where do we use this name?
Given that I excluded URL and Splash above and EPP before. What is left? Mostly docs and public naming of the release train.
As long as we generally use the term/name internally, SimRel seems
fine. When we need a term/name for external purposes, it's probably
better to avoid that need and to describe what it is rather than assign
a name/term to it.
Propsals so far:
- Desktop IDE
What is your vote for the name then?
The Planning Council decided to use SimRel for the time being.
But isn't that what people don't like and want to replace? Or is SimRel good?
