To start with a "proper fork" #1, we are looking for a new name for addon and organization

name should refer to Twitter, Firefox, and maybe to the Echofon origin

Please share your ideas here, we'll update list, and choose among all shortly ;)

@AntoineTurmel suggested "Chirpfox" 🐦 on Gitter

I (@ath0mas) suggest "Echofon NG" to show the strong Echofon roots, and NG as for Gmail Manager addon that evolved into Gmail Manager NG after it discontinued

"Not Echofon" as @ozh decided to retire his fork #10

There is also TwitterFox : the old name.
I also suggest Chofon. :)

I don't think we should take Echofon in the name, as it is maybe a trademark.

The trademark point might be valid, although I think they don't care a bit

Chofon 👍 ! :)

Yeah I assume Echofon is a trademark and soon or later they can sue us.

@AntoineTurmel : interested in re-using the legal.png image? Even after renaming I think it would be best to keep record that we've been forking their code with their blessing (or sort of)

As a new "name should refer to Twitter, Firefox, and maybe to the Echofon origin", what do you think about something like Echofox or Foxecho for example?
That seems answer the problematic, keeping a perceivable reference about the objective (easy to remember).

Firefox will soon only allow signed add-ons, so we have to vote for a name.

I put online a poll to vote for the name:

Nope. I've voted for Echofox, since this proposal is much better than mine. 😄

So, it seems that I'm not alone to perceive that a word like Echofox appears as particularly relevant in this instance... 👼

Echofon Unofficial at the moment 😃
= maintained version more than a real rename of addon

In this case, why closing the issue? We could do it when the official renaming will be validated, no?

Name question is answered with Echofox
If other issues related to publication go to an end (on AMO, and fully cutting off existing links to Echofon/UberMedia identity and services), we know that we will rename addon at the same time (?)
