Maybe don't ask the inmates what the asylum/prison should be called. Why 
don't we have people that are confused about this weighing in on this 
thread? Oh right because they don't subscribe to, or read, or reply to a 
development mailing list.

God I feel like I waste an inordinate amount of time each week reading 
about what new process or thing we're going to call something, rather 
than actually working on getting stuff done for the release or reviewing 
changes. I'm tired of constant bureaucratic distraction. I believe it 
has to be demoralizing to the development community.

I'm not trying to offend or troll so much as vent some frustration.
