I understand there must be confusion. SW releases have been named
with 'Om' since the very first release. We will continue in this path
in the future.

We are an open-source company. These names have been defined by
different, paid employees from all over the world at different times.
I understand it may be confusing, but I would not change these now,
unless they are specifically aimed at a sw release. these names have
been established and there is little value in changing them, just like
we do not want to change from 'Om' to something else.
