That's a good point. I think at this stage just having grizzly on the ballot is
a fair next step.

Gazelle seems to carry more of the characteristics we would want (nimble,
quick). Grizzly carries rather grim connotations of mauling, lumbering, and having a rather nasty disposition. I would not want
that in a cloud.
Also, as an adjective, grizzly means 'showing characteristics of age, especially
having grey or white hair'.
While the name may sound cool, it is actually ill fitting.

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'.

Yes, it's that time of the year again... time for us to choose the name of the next OpenStack release !
This time, cities and counties in California (San Diego, CA being the location of the G design summit)
I set up a poll with the available options (based on our current rules of naming) at:
Poll is accessible to all members of ~openstack group in Launchpad, and ends next Tuesday, 21:30 UTC. Please cast your vote!
I'm aware that a subversive movement wants to try to amend the rules so that another name option becomes available. Since we can't stop (or modify) the poll now that it's been launched, if that movement reaches critical mass, we may organize a second round of polling :)
