Re: voting


Hi all,
I also vote for YADE-OpenXXX  ...10 points

Pay attention... not literally "OpenXXX"!!!
...but "OpenDEM", "OpenFEM", OpenBEAM,...


>>>How do I give 100 points to Frederics idea of a Yade-Open DEM /
>>>Yade-Open BEAM / Yade-Open Whatever suite? ;-)
>>>I like this idea a lot.
>>You have voted for YADE-OpenDEM and that's it.
>>The point is, however, that we seek a single name. It is obvious what
>>will be the names of various components (DEM, FEM, BEAM, etc...)
>>We will make a new website, with a new title at the top. And what
>>would we place there - three names?
>>   Yade-Open DEM / Yade-Open BEAM / Yade-Open Whatever ?
>>And add a new new each time a new package is added? Or maybe a single
>>   Yade-Open ?
>>I hope that you see the point now - the names for various components
>>are obvious. But we need a single name to name them all together.
