> interesting, and if you have a minute as an experiment, I'd like to
> ask you all something:
> What naming conventions should we use for GHC buildbots? We've been
> adding more bots recently, and we've just gotten hold of some new
> hardware this week.
> Currently, GHC buildbots don't have any reserved name or identifier,
> or DNS entries. I'd like to change that - we mostly refer to them by
> IP, but this is annoying A) to remember and B) to tell other people.
> We'll likely begin to lease out these machines to developers so they
> can test and debug - meaning they'll be mentioned more.
> I'd like to propose a theme for naming buildbots - this theme would be
> used to populate DNS entries under the *.ghc.haskell.org domain.
> The question is: what naming convention do we use?
> So I created a poll for this. You can see that poll and vote for your
> favorite options on Phabricator:
>   - https://phabricator.haskell.org/V3
> It's an approval vote rather than a plurality; so feel free to select
> multiple choices. The winner with the most votes will get selected.
> Note: the selection of options is relatively random and pre-selected;
> there is an upper limit on the number of choices - 10 max - so I
> merely picked some categories I thought would work and be generic
> enough.
> I imagine this vote will be open for about a week or so. I'd like it
> if developers could vote on their favorites, or simply leave comments
> on the vote for further suggestion - we could institute a vote with
> better names.
> Thanks all - and be sure to have happy holidays.
> P.S I did not know RFC 1178 existed before today. Seems like there's
> one for everything...
