Re: [] Naming the Simultaneous Release and products

Some ideas for names for the Eclipse TLP / Eclipse Platform Project that look like "top", start with "top" or include the letters "t", "o", "p":

Eclipse Topspot (palindrome)
Eclipse Teapot (short and stout)
Eclipse Topsoil (the base from which many thing grow)
Eclipse Topeka (a city in USA)
Eclipse Taupo (a city in New Zealand)
Eclipse Teahupoo (a surf break in Tahiti - huge waves are produced from a very shallow reef base)
Eclipse Toplep (a cure for headaches)
Eclipse Troppo (Italian word, as in "nominare le cose è troppo difficile!")
Eclipse Pico (Spanish for peak, pinnacle, top of the mountain, also a prefix meaning 1e-12 or 1 trillionth)

Would it be worth starting a bugzilla to solicit input from the community on what to call the Eclipse TLP and/or the simrel?

We need to have a name for the simultaneous release and the products that we build from it. I would like to frame the process for selecting this name on our next call.

To be clear, we need to select a name for the simultaneous release itself. In part, because the simultaneous release is actually a simultaneous release and so we need to distinguish it from the others (e.g. the Science and Jakarta EE working groups). When I refer to the "products", I mean the downloads that we refer to today as "Eclipse IDE for ..." 

The name of the simultaneous release and corresponding products can be the same. e.g. the "Eclipse Placeholder IDE for Java Developers, 2018-12 Edition" is created from the "Eclipse Placeholder Simultaneous Release".

Note that the Eclipse PMC is in the process of selecting a new name for the Top Level Project. I believe that the name that they select could be fair game for the simultaneous release (I haven't really thought it through), but I do not believe that there is any requirement that the names have any formal relationship.

I would like to invite the Eclipse Foundation's marketing director Thabang Mashologu to attend the call.
