Telly Me What Comes Next: Pick the Next Puppet Code Name
8 December 2011
It's come time for us to pick a code name for our next release of Puppet. If you help develop Puppet you may be fairly familiar with our naming system, but for those who haven't yet contributed to the open source project, we name each version of Puppet after a Muppet.
We use code names because it gives us the flexibility to decide the maturity of a release. By setting features at "Telly" we've not committed to "Telly" being a major release or a point release. The code name allows us to holistically review the growth of the project and decide which level of release is most appropriate.
This time we'd like you to pick the name. At the bottom of this post is a place for you to pick your favorite name(s) and send them to us. The Muppet Wiki has a comprehensive list of Muppets. Our only rule is that you pick a name we haven't used yet that comes after the letter 'T' (in recent releases, we narrowed the field by picking names in alphabetical order). Polls close at the end of 2011.
For reference, here's a table of previous (and therefore ineligible for this contest) code names:
