Choose a more appropriate project name

Problem/Motivation

The first people who discussed the need for this project were reminded of Drupal Gardens, a storefront which allowed thousands of non-technical users to launch Drupal sites. This project is not affiliated with the original Drupal Gardens, which shut down in 2016. The initial name for this project was inspired by the idea that a thousand people could run their own storefront like Drupal Gardens. While this convenient shortcut helped some people understand the goals of the project, this project needs its own name.

Proposed resolution

Salim has created a demo site for this project at drupalforge.org. I propose we rename this project to Drupal Forge.

    Some possible options:

    Space-related (although Starshot is just a codename)

    • Drupal Galaxy
    • Drupalverse
    • Aurora
    • Corona

    Other ideas

    • Drupal Serve
    • Drupal Grove
    • Drupal Seeds

    Since "Starshot" is an (interim?) working project name, and not a consumer-facing brand name,
    and since "Drupal Gardens" is an inspiration, but we don't want to step on their trademarks/namespace or
    over-emphasise connections that aren't really there, how about...

    Starshot Gardens?

    That would let us kick the can down the road, identify the initial influences of Starshot and Drupal Gardens, but still
    leave us a little time to figure out branding once the product starts to come into better focus.

    Salim has created a demo site for this project at drupalforge.org. I am in favor of adopting Drupal Forge as the name for this project.

    Also want to understand the relationship between this project and the DA as I know the DA are exploring how to connect people to hosting providers once they have a demo site they want to move.

    We have move this project to drupal.org/project/drupalforge and created a #drupalforge Slack channel. Your questions are addressed on the new project page, but briefly,

    1. We are meeting with people about forming an advisory board, but there is not an official board yet.
    2. DevPanel has donated work for a demo site.
    3. We want to bring this project under the governance of the Starshot initiative and are preparing a presentation for them.
