I had some offline feedback about making a vote from people who actually
contributed to our modules, which makes more sense.
I decided to close the public poll (you can see results ).
So if you made at least one contribution to the Puppet OpenStack modules
over the last 6 months, you should probably have an email that allows
you to vote for the new project name.
Of course, I'll publish the result by Tuesday during our meeting.
