By "stand alone Open Source project" I mean a project which has its own 
steering committee, svn, issue tracker, wiki etc.

So far, our aim has been to select a unique memorable name and icon for 
the project, and with most of our GeoFOSS projects using derivatives of 
the word "open" or "geoXXX", we thought that it would be wise to select 
something different. (Like "skype" which doesn't have anything to do 
with free IP telephone calls).
But I hear the comments about the name "arramagong" and will discuss it 
with others at LISAsoft today.
