Every name is going to either offend someone or be mind numbingly
bland. If I'd called this thing bug-squashers@perl.org someone would
have complained about offending their Budist sensibilities (don't
laugh, I caught flak for suggesting "karma" in conjunction with
CPANTS).

My biggest concern with the discussion over the name was getting it
*off* the mailing lists I'd CC'd the announcement to. So sorry if I
sounded a little harsh. Looking back, I should have BCC'd the
announcement to them instead.

The names people suggested are all equally valid, but the list is set
up, the code is in place and working, the project is active. I like
to move fast. If you want a say in anything, join the list and start
helping.

Besides, think of the puns!
Amen.
