How does RHEL come up with its codename for various versions like RHEL 8 is Ootpa, RHEL 7 is Maipo, RHEL 6 is Santiago and so on ?
For example , Debian versions are named after characters from Toy Story movies (Buzz, Woody, Buster, Bullseye ...)
Odd city names?
"Ootpa" was the IRC nickname of late Larry Troan, a Red Hat associate and father of Eric Troan. As with the Codename, there will be a voting, basis which the names are selected.
