Komodo name is already taken by other project

They really should at least google a name before using it for a project.

ActiveState has a software product name Komodo. It would've taken 10 seconds of effort to discover this.

Anyone else remember the fiasco with Mozilla using already taken software project names like Firebird (rdbms)?

I'm not saying that they shouldn't have looked first. I am just pointing out that both the Gentoo projects get along fine even though they share the same name.

That's my point. If ActiveState REALLY has a problem with it, we've been working on a name contest in our forums to change it. If, its necessary.
