Subject RE: [DISCUSS][CHIMERA] Name for the new component

Thanks Benedikt so much for your effort driving this and all folks for support.
The developers at the original github also made improvements towards Apache Commons such as
the API doc, user guide and site.

Subject: Re: [DISCUSS][CHIMERA] Name for the new component


as promised here is a tally up of the name proposals:

Apache Commons EasyCrypt (sebb, Emmanuel Bourg)

Apache Commons Crypto (Uma Gangumalla, Gary Gregory, Haifeng Chen, Cheng A Xu, Uwe Barthel,
Dapeng Sun, Ralph Goers, myself)

Note that I've only counted the first vote by people who had several proposals.

I think we should go with Apache Commons Crypto, since the majority of people like it, and
it seems to be the preference of the initial committers.

If anybody sees the need for a formal vote instead, please object to this with the next few
days. Otherwise, I'm going to request a git repository and GitHub mirror from infra at the
beginning of next week and will start setting up the project.

Thank you!
