Hey everyone,

There is ongoing discussion about changing our release naming process, but for
the time being we are going to stick with what we have been doing. That means
it's time to start thinking about the "V" release name!

The next developer event will take place in Vancouver, BC. The geographic
location for this release will be things starting with "V" in the British
Columbia province.

The nomination period is now open. Please add suitable names to
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Release_Naming/V_Proposals. We will accept
nominations until December 6, 2019 23:59:59 UTC.

A recap of our current naming 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.

Looking forward to having a name for our next release!
