Today, because of the branding and the name "RDO Manager", you might
think that it's something other than TripleO - either something
entirely different or perhaps with downstream patches baked in.
You would not be the only one because the community, the users and the
developers alike have shared their confusion on that topic.

The truth is, as it stands right now, "RDO Manager" really is "TripleO".
There is no code or documentation differences.

I feel the only thing that is different is the strategy around how we
test TripleO to ensure the stability of RDO packages but it's already
in the process of being sent upstream [1] because we're convinced it's
the best way forward.

Historically, RDO Manager and TripleO were different things.
Today this is no longer the case and we plan on keeping it that way.

With this in mind, we would like to drop the RDO manager branding and
use TripleO instead.
Not only would we clear the confusion on the topic of what RDO Manager
really is but it would also strengthen the TripleO name.

We would love the RDO community to chime in on this and give their
feedback as to whether or not this is a good initiative.
We will proceed to a formal vote on $subject at the next RDO meeting
on Wednesday, 24th Feb, 2016 1500 UTC [2]. Feel free to join us on
#rdo on freenode.
