Hey everyone!

It's time to pick a name for the P and Q releases.

If you have a name you'd like us to vote on, please add it here:



The nominations will be open until 2016-06-28 23:59:59 UTC.

If you don't remember the rules, they're here:


But I'll paste in the text here:

The following rules are designed to provide some consistency in the
pattern used to select release names, provide a fun challenge in finding
names that meet the criteria, and prevent unwieldy names from being chosen.

  1  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.

  2  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.

  3  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.

  4  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.
