Hi Steffen,

I strongly oppose SIG, it should be reserved my hometown's "Strasbourg
Illkirch-Graffenstaden" basketball club's name ;)

More seriously, I agree with Andreas and others that CDD such a bad name
that there is a long-term benefit to change it. While I am not
particularly found of the "DIS" acronym, I like the concept of
"integrated solution", and the DISh playword can help to make things
sound more casual when needed. I checked Google and Google Images, and
nothing bad comes with "DIS". For "Debian DIS" searches, we will have to
compete against the package `dis', however.

Have a nice day,
