Wandering what the Fedora 19 Release name will be?

Well Fedora chose release name by community election.

Proposed names are:
  • Cubical Calf
  • Higgs Boson
  • Loch Ness Monster
  • Martian Blueberries
  • Newtonian Dynamics
  • Parabolic Potassium
  • Schrödinger's Cat
  • Tiddalik
  Personally I like Schrödinger's Cat, it will be neat after Spherical Cow (Fedora 18 release Name).

Vote

By the way Fedora Elections are on their way for FESCO, FAMSCO and the Fedora Board, if you want to be part of one of this committees, more info http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Elections

Is it possible to find out why some of the suggestions were rejected? I'm not complaining about the fact that mine wasn't accepted (doesn't matter which) but I'd like to learn why.

Well you can go this wiki page and see the notes of the board and notice why they reject the proposal http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Name_suggestions_for_Fedora_19

Interesting: there are a number of suggested names that have no comments and mine is one of them. Did they just stop when they had what they consider enough acceptable suggestions? (Again, not a complaint, just a question about the process.)

Well may be it was rejected by legal, so they don't evaluate or was introduces after the dead line. No way to know exactly. Well you can try again next release. Best luck then
