I don't know if this makes a difference, but version 6.5 of the distribution "antix" was also named "Spartacus".

We'll write it as Spartakus; so it'll be an homage to Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, too.

Post subject:  Political Prisoners

For the next upcoming releases, I'd like to consider naming releases based on political prisoners worldwide. This may mean moving away from the convention of parodying the Fedora releases like we've done in the past.

I'm comfortable with that if it helps tell the (his/her)story of a individual who is currently imprisoned, was imprisoned or face exile or extreme scrutiny in the face of adversity against a system or systems.

Release names provide that ability to inform and discuss within our community individuals that embody some of the political philosophies that impact each of us within our country and globally which impacts us socially, politically and economically, at the very least.

In doing so, we gain knowledge that is part of an important story which may have been lost, forgotten or manipulated which lends us the ability to find truth while showing humility for those who have fought and those who continue to fight in struggles globally.

At the very least, I want to make blaggers and others who come across BLAG to be aware of their contribution and presence in the modern day fight for freedom.

As an example below, here is one website that I found. Please post more as you come across them

Why not name the next release after the most known one: Mandella
