I personnaly dislike "Blend", but will not oppose if I am only part of a
small minority.

Before this discussion, I did not know what a blend is, apart that it is
used for whiskies. I checked the dictionary, and its fundamental meaning
is a mixture of different things. I strongly recommend to try to write
down an explanation of what a Debian Pure Blend is and to translate it
in a few languages before adopting it: I personnaly do not know how to
explain that it is a mixture that contains only one ingredient.

For me, the Doodle matrix shows that the outome of a Condorcet vote
would probably be "none of the above". I recommend to keep on looking
for a description that is not misleading.

Have a nice day,
