Ok, so what you guys are proposing is to have a site that's much more than just a ZSI.  You want a site that's a repository for all things embedded?

That's interesting, and definately possible.  Would I need to ask what kind of PDA a certain software is made for than when you enter it into the DB, or does that not matter as long as you're using the same os?

I think perhaps the ability for the software developer to be able to specify which handhelds it was designed for/was tested for would be an advantage.

hmm, how bout a mapping a bunch of names, and put up the results in a poll.

my 2cents
generally speaking "branding" and the internet usually follow 2 simple rules.
1. try to limit your brand to 2 syllables
2. limit the number of constanents to an absolute minimum.
exception is if your name needs to be big, but you use an acronym.

we know it's linux so how about using penguin zoology> rookery, nest,

types of penguins, King, Gentoo(taken), little blue penguin?lbp(smallest penguin?)

movie theme angle:
How about a penguin that looks like yoda? Zoda, Software for zaurus, i have!hmm, hmm

non z names
Emsource
emdb
emfeed
moembed
uniteos
pimpware
Motusembd

random names
Uberdb
zoftware
zware
Zipk

howabout names that have nothing to do with linux/software/computers
roninblade
butterkicks
sweetpacket
minibig
quikfix
buzzkila
size1
sikred
nuhit(newhit)
bluelimit
tastyburger
icechili
veggiemeat

any animals anybody identifies with?
bull
penguin(obvious)
tiger
monkey
sapien

motto?
peace
lu

ps. this is, if there is was a reason to have a zug meeting. or call it a zug party near you. Unless this is a private venture, please excuse my enthusiasm. libations tend to motivate creativity.

dz yo might want to do a sub categories then something like:
manufacturer -> sub model

sharp -> Select models (SL-6000, CL-3000)
HP -> H6300
Yopy - YP3700
Simpad - xxxx

So peoples could select in search
'I want apps for HP devices, for familiar'
'I want apps for CL-3000 for openzaurus'
'I want apps for SL-5000 for Sharp Rom and cacko ROM'

Well soemthing like that I guess, except if someone see better than the 'manufacturer'.


For the domain name i dont know, I like vault (ZVault that someone said). Maybe thats could be like EVault (sure is taken) or LEVault (Linux Embedded Vault).
LESoft.org. LHEsoft, LHEVault whatver is not 'bad'

back to the original topic for a moment...

I like ZUGSI

(Zaurus User Group Software Index; pronounced ZUG-see)

The domain is available too (with all TLDs): www.zugsi.com

Psycho: that feature is already built in smile.gif When a user registers an account, they will be able to chose their base model. Then they will have the option of either red-lighting each software that's not meant for their model, or just flat out not showing any software not meant.

actually, dz and I have been talking to sven (owner/creator of the original zsi) and he's agreed to let us put the new zsi2 site where the current zsi lives...basically replace the zsi with zsi2.

this is great news, because the current zsi is already well known and bookmarked.

thanks for the great suggestion though!!!

definitely mirroring is a good thing...

back to the name... dz and I were chatting last night... and I think it's agreed that the site name shouldn't have the name "zaurus" in it. the goal of the site is to start with zaurus apps/roms, then grow into a bigger embedded linux site.

sven had came up with the name 'embedded linux software index' a while ago, but unfortunately elsi.org is taken.

I know that the domain name isn't everything, but we're trying to brand this site, as it will eventually be a part of the overall non-profit organization.

that said, many of the domain names for the names suggested have been taken, but I think these two are still available:

embeddedapps.org
lehat.org

any more thoughts on these two names? any other name suggestions?

thanks all!

How about

zaurusgoodies
handheldgoodies
hanheldlinuxgoodies
hlgoodies
hungrypenguin
stuffyourzaurus (just kidding)
eldorado (Embedded Linux dorado - call me whacky)
ipkheaven
ipkindex

Regarding "eldorado", the Spanish article "el" can be used with any noun of the male genus so the possibilities are wider.

My personal favourite is hungrypenguin: my Zaurus always seems to be begging for new applications & capabilities wink.gif
