What name will come after Jessie?

What will Debian call there next release after Jessie? Isn't that the last name from Toy Story that they haven't used ? Just curious.. :D

They could switch to a different movie. How about the dwarves in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Debian Sneezy and Debian Grumpy. Kind of catchy. Or they could start creating their own names, like Narly Quetzequatle. Oh wait. That has already been done. Of course, there is nothing wrong with no names. Debian 9, Debian 10, etc.

I can only guess but i suppose that they will go with the obvious choice: recycling!
After Jessie it is buzz-2 and then rex-2, bo-2 etc. Of course they could change the order of appearance just for more fun.

The next best alternative would be to choose random names of other distros: Debian GNU/Linux 9 Fedora, Debian GNU/Linux 10 Slackware, Debian GNU/Linux 11 Arch Linux etc maybe even specific releases like Debian GNU/Linux 12 Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron. The purpose of this would be to pay tribute to the big FOSS community (hag) and spread love but the downside would be that the names will never end so no recycling will be needed in the future.

I haven't installed Debian Zurg or Debian Pricklepants yet, no need to panic.

Followed shortly by Debian Nemo, Debian WALL-E...

Somehow I thought of the Movie Dirty Love starring Jenny McCarthy
the plot thickens -
after -
an app le maxi pad and a le vono stink pad married then moved to china,
they make a killing in the markets. With their supply chain
working continuously to maintain a secure hold on several monopolies.
Even some of their supply chain vendors hold monopolies.
Governments are amazed by the success.
and the and.

moral:
beware o' da unihorn

How about a tribute to Charles Schultz and use all the Peanuts character names, Lucy, Charlie, Linus, Snoopy etc. ?

I wonder if they'll ever use "RC". That'd get a bit confusing during beta testing.

The name is 'Stretch', https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stretch_%28Toy_Story%29 . Sory for bumping an old thread though.
Intel Dual-Core CPU E5400 (soc 775) @ 2.70GHz, onboard Intel G33, Asus MB P5KPL-AM IN (Intel G31), D-Link 2750u modem+router, 64-bit Debian Testing, GNOME 3.14 Flashback.

rc-buggy is a permanent codename for Experimental, I believe - being a pun on "Release Critical buggy".

I always thought that it stood for Release Candidate: Buggy.
