And in my opinion, Dennis' death is reason enough to change the F17 name even
though it has already been voted upon... After all that is what paying your
final respect is - changing your plans to acknowledge the passing of someone
great. When you have a minute of silence, you don't just go out and say "mourn
for a minute whenever don't have anything better to do" but you set a time and
no matter what is going on, expect people to show their respects...

This isn't the best list for such suggestions. It is a Fedora Board
decision.

I think it would be more appropriate to rename F16, rather than wait for a
whole year to pay respects to the man. Since Ritche was a key inventor of both
C and UNIX, I believe a case can be made to make an exception and rename the
first upcoming release, which will be F16.

Rahul, can you present the case to the relevant people, maybe open a vote on
it so that everyone can formally state their opinion?

My suggestion is the following:

(1) Rename F16 to "Ritchie" (or "Dennis", whatever people like better),
(2) Rename F17 to "Verne" (in order not to insult the great writer),
(3) Rename F18 to "Beefy Miracle" (in order to keep the chain of "is a"
naming).

I think that is the least Fedora Community can do to pay respects to Dennis
Ritchie. Opinions?

Best, :-)
Marko
