Hyperledger project naming guidelines - draft for discussion

Brian Behlendorf

We have seen a small handful of projects join Hyperledger in recent months, and it's likely we'll see a similar number if not more apply through the rest of this year.  Naming has at times been an issue for submissions.  While it's important that the developers behind a proposal set the name for their project, the Hyperledger Marketing Committee and some of the LF staff put together a set of guidelines and recommendations for new project names and a process for the proposers, TSC, and HL/MC to use to arrive at a name.

The result is two new draft articles for your review in the Community Tools section of the Wiki.

The first is a step-by-step process found under the how-to articles: https://wiki.hyperledger.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=13863190

The second provides our branding considerations, common pitfalls to avoid, and questions to help guide the evaluation process, found under "Best Practices": https://wiki.hyperledger.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=13863192

We are open to taking your comments on tomorrow's TSC call, and ideally we can iterate it based on feedback and get the TSC's approval at an upcoming call. We are asking the same of the Marketing Committee on our monthly call this upcoming Tuesday, with the goal of closing in on approvals in the next two weeks.
