You want to change the name, so I think you need to find a strategy for this.

For example, keep the wikipage about suggested names updated. At the moment, 
there is not a single, structured place with all the proposals, listing their 
pros and cons as discussed on the list. (And yes, I consider this your duty, 
you want to change the name.)

According to this definition, DISh is not acceptable. Good ;-)

Consensus doesnt mean everybody agrees. At least, rough consensus doesnt mean 
that :-)

I'm *so* sick of this argument. Either you want to discuss properly or you 
dont have time to do it, or dont want to take the time. Pressuring 
discussions by saying one would rather spend the time doing something 
sensible IME is unproductive at best. Go coding.

You can change the name of the cdd-dev package as often as you want (I dont 
say you should... just technically you can), if the new name is not good, it 
will not be picked up and the confusion about the name and the concept will 
be bigger, not smaller. So just choosing any new name, might actually hurt. 
I'd like to avoid that.
