    As many of you are aware  Dmitry has accepted a position with Zend and will no longer be actively working on Turck MMCache. 

    This will not be the end of Turck MMCache because several users including myself have stepped foward to continue development of the project.

    This brings the next point, Dmitry was considering renaming the project before he left because it no longer uses mm combined with the fact that neither Turck or Dmitry are now actively developing mmcache it seems the justification for a rename is high.

    I would like to have this thread serve as an official place to suggest names for the Turck MMCache project. 

    Any new name will be slowly phased in because I am concerned about confusing the existing Turck MMCache user base.

      What's the new "company" name?

      I'd suggest something like PHPcache, but AFAIK the PHP people frown upon people using PHP in a product name.

      There are a lot of famous open source using php like phpBB, phpWiki, phpMyAdmin, phpNuke, phpCollab ...  If zend really had the power then they would of shut all those projects down.

       
      • You should obey the license, if you can. AFAIR, "PHP Cache" is prohibited, but "Cache for PHP" (just example), will be legal.
        Try "Accelerating Cache for PHP" :)

      I think that phpCache is prohibitet only if mmcache uses php licence. If any other there's no problem.

      I can think of a name like "PHP T-Cache" or "T-Cache for PHP". The cryptic T-Cache can be a sign of its original root, Turck.

      T-cache is not bad. It could mean "PHP Turbo-Cache".

    • Google returned 5 items for thge following word:

      "Zenify"

      (Zen: http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen\)

      Which I think would be quite apt in terms of describing my enlightment when I finally came across mmcache... makes a pretty nifty project name too IMNSHO. :D

       
    • Blah, need edit... Just realised the play on words of what "Zend" were (possibly) trying to do.

      Given the likiness in interpretation of name in "Zend" vs. "Zenify" which may or may not be desirable... I also suggest changing the "Z" for an "X", ie: "Xenify" ("X" pronounced as per "Xenon").

      We're not naming a company.  We're naming a product so it should be clear as to what it does.  How about PHP Tweak? PHP Fine Tune?

    • How about something with a Z instead of an S in the name?

      like
      php Zpeeder
      php Zpeeder Cache

      or something, like
      php ZCache

       
    • Let's respect D.Stogov solution!
      He named his project "Turck MMCache for PHP",
      where Turck was his company name and MM stands for a shared memory library.
      Ok, Turck is not affilated now and the project doesn't use MM, but it's own code for shared memory.
      Then, why not to rename it to "SHMCache for PHP".
      "SHMCache for PHP" semantically close to the original name, stands for an action this libriry does and wouldn't disorient those who are using it now.

      P.S. Who is a project leader (administrator) now?
      Send me a letter.

        At least I use it because of the encoding functionality, not because of the cache.

        Though, respecting Dmitriy's great work somehow is a good idea.

      I would go for something like vladimir_k suggested
      along the lines of: "phpSHMCache"

      Why not just do mmcache? It's not using mm anymore, but I can't pronounce phpSHMCache for the hell of it...

      Sorry,
      Andi

        How do you pronounce "MMCache" anyway? :)

      I like the idea of using the word 'Phast' in there somehwhere because that implies PHP and Fast although non-english speakers might not get it.

      As mweck suggested, I like 'PhastCache'.  To me this is a catchy name that is short and sweet.

      I think choosing a bad name can really hurt the visibility and adoption of the project.  It needs to be something clever and catchy (I think 'PhastCache' is both).

        PhastCache reminds me of "Phat", a word which doesn't reflect professionalism at all

        I don't particularly like words that sound alike but written differently
