The community has approved a rename of the incubation project to Cordova.

Good that we have a decision on this!

Just to double check (I might have missed this in earlier discussion, sorry if I did): Have we verified that "Cordova" meets all (or at least most of) the criteria in

Mentors: is the next step to contact infrastructure?

Depends on the specific tasks. Here's a quick (and possibly incomplete) list of places to update:

* Incubator bookkeeping (projects.html, etc.), which can be updated at least by us mentors and possibly also by any committer (I'm not sure what the latest access settings are, there was recent discussion about opening up the rights).

* Mailing lists. This needs to be filed as an INFRA request like INFRA-4043 [1]. To avoid having the issue be just about renaming callback-{dev,commits,private} to cordova-{dev,commits,private} (which infra might find a bit annoying since they just recently set up the callback lists), we should take the opportunity to also update the set of list moderators. See [2] for the moderator responsibilities. It's typically a good idea to have around three moderators per list, preferably from different time zones. Any volunteers?

* Issue tracker. You should all have admin access to change the name and other details of the CB project in Jira, but I don't believe the "CB" key itself can be easily changed. We may need to create a new Jira project and move all existing issues there. But see my followup email on issue tracking before we make any decisions here.

* Version control. The Callback name is used in both and The latter is easy enough to change and not really used much but the former may be a bit trickier. If we do get a chance to start hosting the canonical Git repositories at Apache infra sooner rather than later, then that might be the best time to rename them.

* Web site. We still don't have a site to update, so we can simply set up the site directly with the new name. I've been a bit blocked on getting started on this (see INFRA-4045 [3]). Anyone willing to help and/or take over? We also should make sure that other sites that reference Apache Callback get updated accordingly.

* Code & Docs. I assume not too much of the codebase and related documentation was yet updated to refer to Callback instead of PhoneGap. We should now target Cordova instead.

With the appropriate origin description, I think the historical significance of Cordova out-weighs the potential concerns with the appropriate spelling.

A short explanation on the project's homepage can also help - the origin or spelling of many project names is not obvious anyway.
