Hi folks,

It is time again to cast your vote for the naming of the T Release.
As with last time we'll use a public polling option over per user private URLs
for voting.  This means, everybody should proceed to use the following URL to
cast their vote:


We've selected a public poll to ensure that the whole community, not just gerrit
change owners get a vote.  Also the size of our community has grown such that we
can overwhelm CIVS if using private urls.  A public can mean that users
behind NAT, proxy servers or firewalls may receive an message saying
that your vote has already been lodged, if this happens please try
another IP.

Because this is a public poll, results will currently be only viewable by myself
until the poll closes. Once closed, I'll post the URL making the results
viewable to everybody. This was done to avoid everybody seeing the results while
the public poll is running.

The poll will officially end on 2018-11-08 00:00:00+00:00[1], and results will be
posted shortly after.

According to the Release Naming Process, this poll is to determine the
community preferences for the name of the T release of OpenStack. It is
possible that the top choice is not viable for legal reasons, so the second or
later community preference could wind up being the name.

Release Name Criteria

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

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.
