Fedora 16 naming vote delay

It’s been asked a few times so just putting the answer out onto the intarwebs:

Q: When are we going to hold the election for the Fedora 16 release name?
A: Sometime soon. We’re behind schedule because we (the Board) did the pre-filtering of names for easily found collisions on March 22 instead of on March 8th. The names have been submitted to Red Hat legal and we’re currently waiting on them to give us back a list of approved names. Once that’s done, jsmith will add an election to the Fedora Election App and announce that we’re ready for people to start voting. I’ll put in a disclaimer here that you’ve probably all heard: “Past performance is no guarantee of future results” but judging by the time we normally allot to going from submission to legal to having the election, I’m hoping that we’ll be able to start the voting at the end of this week or the start of the next.
