      - The Airflow podling has been using this name for a year prior to incubation.

      I went through the first 3 pages of results (Github seems to rank by repository popularity, by third page all repos had no watchers/forks/stars).

      - Pages contained mostly forks of Airflow, and several related packages: heroku-airflow, airflow-cookbook, puppet-airflow, telemetry-airflow, ansible-airflow, airflow-compose, airflowrepobuilder, AirflowExample, .

      Some small unrelated packages (all have no stars and no forks.)

      - ChasingUX/airflow
      -- Drag and drop flow creator with resource coutnerpart

      - Martin-Cox/AirFlow

      - wavesoft/AirflowPHP
      -- A sleek CMS for PHP

      - abelits/airflow

      - Olanre/AirFlow

      I'm not a trademark specialist but that's a lot of existing software named Airflow. There's also http://nerds.airbnb.com/airflow/ which I don't see listed above.

      I'm not involved in this project but if this was my decision I'd look for another name.

      [~bdelacretaz], http://nerds.airbnb.com/airflow/ *is* this project. Airbnb donated it to Apache.

      Searches also need to describe what our software does, so we can focus on other software products that might be in related fields. From the incubator website:

      Airflow is a platform to programmatically author, schedule and monitor workflows.

      Use airflow to author workflows as directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) of tasks. The airflow scheduler executes your tasks on an array of workers while following the specified dependencies. Rich command line utilities make performing complex surgeries on DAGs a snap. The rich user interface makes it easy to visualize pipelines running in production, monitor progress, and troubleshoot issues when needed.
