Description

Hi all,

I urgently need the name of a city (still existing today) that represents one (or more) characteristic of our new version. Given the fact that Juan Carlos Raña implemented a small search box for the documents tool, I'm currently in favor of "Alexandria", or any close city (geographically) in reference to the Great Library of Alexandria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Alexandria)

If you want to help give a name to the new version, please state a proposal. They will be analysed on Friday afternoon European time and given to the package right before shipping (there are currently 4 bugs left and I'm seriously working on them right now, closing one every 2 hours).

Considering we're short on a deadline (I've already asked for suggestions on the developers mailing list weeks ago with no answer so far), I'll be the one making the last decision, taking into account the most votes as an important factor.

Thanks.

Hello Yannick,

Alexandria sounds find to me and represents the spirit of search.

My suggestion (to have another option) is: Sahara The reason I choose this is double: one to remind the world the problem they are facing there. And second because the Sahara is the last colonized territory in Africa and they struggle and figth to claim their independency. As the sahara citizens, we, the chamilo users, figth every day to make the others consider Chamilo as an independent, strong and powerfull software different from the "Dukeos" one. ;)

Edinburgh, The city where the first Enciclopedia Britannica was published : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encyclop%C3%A6dia_Britannica#First_era
Sahara and Alexandria are also good names.

The "city" element is important, so unless Sahara is a city, we'll have to find a city representative of the Sahara problem.

How about Palmas? It is the younger state capital of Brazil. Palmas in English means plaudit and has gained a high profile in the country, like Chamilo, new and growing.

After a few local queries, Palmas will be used. Surprisingly, it is a city without much history (created in 1990), but Brazil being a place we definitely want Chamilo to extend to, and having contributors from Palmas already makes it easier to choose (and also the fact that it comes from an external member of the team).
