The polls have closed and we now have a new name for our project, NuGet (pronounced “New Get” and not “Nugget” and not “Noojay” for you hoity-toity) which had the most votes by a large margin.
For those who missed it, the following posts will get you up to speed on the name change:
- A few days ago I wrote about our need to rename NuPack
- I followed up with more details about the rename
- And then I wrote about how the community offered its own choices
Over the next couple of days we’ll start transitioning the project over to the new name. We’ll try to minimize the impact of the change and make sure existing links to the CodePlex project redirect to the new URL. If you have a local clone of the repository with work in progress when we rename the project, don’t worry. All you have to do is push your changes to the new URL for your fork rather than the old one.
Thanks for your participation and support! I’m glad to have this behind us so we can continue to focus on delivering a great product. I’ve even thought of a tagline we can use until one of you come up with a much better one.
