PhoneGap vs. Cordova

Who was the idiot that made the final decision to change the name from PhoneGap to Cordova? PhoneGap has a meaning, it's a great name to describe what this software does. Cordova means nothing to anyone except of few people that came up with it. Not to mention that before if you wanted to find advice on how to do something with PhoneGap, you wrote "PhoneGap" in search. Now you have to search everything twice.

Re: PhoneGap vs. Cordova

The PhoneGap name has not gone away. PhoneGap will continue to be around and is now owned by Adobe. They have and will continue to build value behind the PhoneGap brand.

Graciously, the original creators of PhoneGap worked with the community and the Apache foundation prior to the acquisition by Adobe to ensure that the core of PhoneGap would remain open source and continue to thrive. At that time, much discussion was made as to the name for the Apache project which eventually lead to the name Cordova. The name was chosen for several reasons. Name has significance to original creators, did not have copyright issues and separated the project from an association from phones as the project has broader aspirations.

Going forward you can view the Apache and Cordova relationship similar to the relationship between WebKit and the numerous browsers built on top of it. While PhoneGap is the only current distribution of the Cordova framework there will likely be more in the future.

We understand this has caused some confusion in the community but it will be a minor hiccup in the long term.
