TL;DR - Screw the rules, let's call the next release 'Grizzly'
As California is rather lacking in the 'municipality names starting with a G that we should use for an OpenStack release' department, I have had to look *slightly* outside the ruleset to find a suitable 'G' release name - that name being 'Grizzly'. The rules clearly state that a release name must represent a city or county near the corresponding design summit and be comprised of a single word of ten characters or less - the problem here being that 'Grizzly' is actually 'Grizzly Flats.' Having already polled a small subset of the community, I feel like there would be enough support for 'Grizzly' to win if it were on the ballot. As I'm more interested in selecting a suitable name than accurately representing some arbitrary territory, I'd love to either permanently amend the rules to make this acceptable or grant an exception in this one case. As Thierry said, if this reaches critical mass, we will figure out what to do. Otherwise, I'll shut up and deal with 'Gazelle'.
I will join your Bear Flag Revolt.
Best. Picture. Ever. We have a G winner... and honestly, if that's not the t-shirt then I'm going to have my own bear flag revolt.
We could amend the rules to add official symbols of the territory in question. Despite being one of the most recognized symbols of California, named the state animal, and appearing on the state flag, the Grizzly bear (Ursus californicus) has been extinct here since 1922.
