=== Things to be aware of ===

 +
* Release code names need to be checked against possible trademark confusion.
 +
* Pretty much every "simple" trademark exists somewhere and with the way even products like candy bars have computer crossover, it is not a simple check.
 +
* Trademark confusion may be easier to avoid by using disconnected terms (the Ubuntu coding scheme makes this easier).
 +
* Trademark confusion is expensive to deal with for a product that has a shelf life of 12 months.
 +
* Any one scheme will play out over time so the ability to change course after some time would be useful to encode in the rules.

Things that are Blue Fedora's primary color is blue Blue foods & drinks, blue gemstones, blue elements, bodies of water, shades of blue, blue stars, blue planets, blue fish & other animals, etc. A general category allows us to have a wide variety of names like we have had in the past, while staying with a simple central theme. It also allows for more themeing and design customization than a category like "types of coffee" would from release to release. We could keep the suggestion & voting scheme in place and allow for a similar level community involvement.

There are many spring/fall related names in different cultures around the world (in particular, dieties and celebrations are often closely connected to spring or fall). By choosing names from different cultures, we can highlight Fedora's worldwide nature. And we can include both northern and southern hemispheres by associating releases with the spring or fall in the area from which the name comes (e.g., an october release could use autumn-related name from a place in the northern hemisphere, or a spring-related name from the southern hemisphere).
