due to potential conflict with the owner of the trademark 'Godzilla' we
are no longer creating new projects that use 'zilla' in part of their
name. using 'moz' in names is still acceptable.
we are doing this simply to avoid any future problems. no one from the
trademark owner has contacted any of the mozdev admins or any of the
project owners as far as i know. this step seems to be a prudent
decision though since the trademark owner has contacted mozilla.org
about the use of 'zilla' in some of their product names.
this change in new project policy does *not* have anything to do with
existing projects. unless an owner has already been contacted about
their name, i don't think any existing 'zilla' projects need to worry
if anyone has more information about mozilla.org's issues with the
trademark owner it might be useful if that could be posted so all of
the project owners are aware of the situation.
