Several businesses and potential partners have provided some consistent feedback.
They want to use our software in their business workflow, STEM programs, etc.
They don’t understand the names ‘Valentina’, ‘LibreFashion’, etc.
The suggestion is to rebrand as Seamly2D.
- easy to understand
- easy to brand
- implies that there will be more (3D, etc.)
Background: Currently, we are using Seamly, LLC whenever a business ID is needed. This is how we can be a Windows-approved package and a Mac-approved package, have long-lasting security certificates, have accounts on Dreamhost, DigitalOcean, etc.
NLnet is creating a non-profit foundation which will hold the open source software license for this project in perpetuity. (Similar model to the Linux Project). We’re looking for several additional open source advocates to be directors on the board. So even if I or anyone else who drives the train for this software gets hit by the proverbial banana truck, NLNet will keep this project going. You and the software will not be affected.
So…What does everyone think about renaming to Seamly2D?
