      Apache Quarks was contributed by IBM to Github and received quite a bit of press. The project has been in the Incubator about 3 months and has an active developers list and contributions (http://quarks.incubator.apache.org/). Since this is a new name to Quarks, there has been no press on it. Discussion and voting happened on the Quarks dev list to agree upon Edgent.

      Description

      This request is a renaming of Apache Quarks to Apache Edgent as the name Quarks is not unique enough

      Apache Edgent is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones).

      Edgent is a combination of "Edge" and "Agent"

        Is there anything else you need from me or our PMC to move the naming forward? Thanks!

        We would like to move our project along and decided to file an infrastructure request to change the name, as I was advised that we could change the name prior to the approval of this request. However, infrastructure put my request on hold until this is done. It has been more than month since I logged this request. Can someone please tell me what to expect at this point? We want to have a release, and move our project forward, but this seems to be the issue to do that.

        Thank you,
        Kathy
