ROS 2 rolling distribution name brainstorming

I would prefer that the codename was still kept as “Rolling”, so Rolling <r-named-turtle>. Would still make a good logo and lets us continue with nomenclature developed in the REP.

Rolling Ridley would be the concrete suggestion, for example

Continuing our theme of potentially violating copyright with ROS names, there is only one R-turtle in my book.

How about keeping that idea, but using the other suggested letter:

TRolling Turtle

Definitely “Rolling Rheodytes”

Rheodytes
Rheodytes leukops - Fitzroy River Turtle

Motivation(s):

  • “Rolling on a river turtle”
  • Rheodytes is “Fitzroy related” and Rolling is based off of Foxy Fitzroy.

Watching the bioluminescencec on national turtle day in San Diego has me thinking…

I really liked the C Turtle logo, and I’d love to see more artwork with sea turtles.

So +1 for Rolling Ridley; rolling releases like the rolling of the bioluminescent waves.

  • ROS 2 Rock & Roll

While I was rolling along on my bike, a name occurred to me:
Rolling Roling Rolling… Rawhide!

Thats a good suggestion, but Fedora has a distro flavor called Rawhide as well and that might become confusing. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/Rawhide

Still by far my favorite ROS distro artwork. Sometimes in slides I’ll remove the “C-turtle” from the logo and use it as an alias for ROS. All the robots running around is really great. The bioluminescence would be awesome.

+1 for Tempting Terrapin, because we’re always tempted by the bleeding edge.

Rolling Ridley also gets my vote.

Relevant trivia of the day! All Debian distributions are named after Toy Story characters. The rolling distribution (i.e. the bleeding edge, untested distribution) is named “Sid”, after the kid next door who spends all his time trying to break toys.
