When referring to releases, we have to say a lot of words. Twenty-dot-zero-seven-dot-zero. Other projects like Ubuntu and Android use names to refer to releases, while still keeping the versioning scheme. It would be great to have a simpler name to refer to the release.
I’m thinking animals. The combo might be an adjective-noun. Like grumpy-gorilla, or crazy-kangaroo. Extra points for two words starting with the same phonetic letters. A shorthand to refer to the releases can further drop the adjective (gorilla release or kangaroo release). To refer to patches, it could be gorilla-one, gorilla-two, kangaroo-zero, etc.
Or, national parks like Yosemite summer for 20.07, or Yellowstone fall for 20.11. Or, mountains, etc. (seems a bit boring compared to grumpy gorilla).
What do you guys think? Ideas?
