Hey everybody,

Once again, it is time for us to pick a name for our "S" release.

Since the associated Summit will be in Berlin, the Geographic
Location has been chosen as "Berlin" (State).

Nominations are now open. Please add suitable names to
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Release_Naming/S_Proposals between now
and 2018-03-05 23:59 UTC.

In case you don't remember the rules:

* Each release name must start with the letter of the ISO basic Latin
alphabet following the initial letter of the previous release, starting
with the initial release of "Austin". After "Z", the next name should
start with "A" again.

* The name must be composed only of the 26 characters of the ISO basic
Latin alphabet. Names which can be transliterated into this character
set are also acceptable.

* The name must refer to the physical or human geography of the region
encompassing the location of the OpenStack design summit for the
corresponding release. The exact boundaries of the geographic region
under consideration must be declared before the opening of nominations,
as part of the initiation of the selection process.

* The name must be a single word with a maximum of 10 characters. Words
that describe the feature should not be included, so "Foo City" or "Foo
Peak" would both be eligible as "Foo".

Names which do not meet these criteria but otherwise sound really cool
should be added to a separate section of the wiki page and the TC may
make an exception for one or more of them to be considered in the
Condorcet poll. The naming official is responsible for presenting the
list of exceptional names for consideration to the TC before the poll opens.

Let the naming begin.
