> Speaking with people about CKAN.net over the last year it has been
> clear that the name CKAN / Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network
> does a poor job describing what the site does (it's far too geeky and
> hard to spell!)
> We are therefore issuing a call for proposals for a new name / domain
> name for CKAN.net!
> Once we have a shortlist we'll put up a doodle poll and the community
> can vote on their preferred option.,
> ## CKAN Tagline
> Related to this, thought on a better 'tagline' describing the purpose
> of ckan.net is also needed (and any general thoughts on what people
> think the core purpose is that this tagline should capture).
> Suggestions please!
> ## CKAN Software Name - No Change
> NB: we do *not* plan to change the name of the underlying software
> which will remain CKAN.
