Just a quick reminder for everyone. We are down to the last week to submit
names to be included in the V release cycle naming.

We already have a few great names on the list for the V release naming poll! If
you have any other good names that start with V related to the British Columbia
geographic region, please add it to the list.

The actual polling to select the official name for the V release will start one
week from today.
