So, suffice to say that Bundler needs to be renamed. That is where you come in:

Loved the article? Hated it? Didn’t even read it?
We’d love to hear from you.
Shinkansen Jr? LOLz
skip the utilitarian names altogether. i’m tired of .net apps using nWhatever and whatever.NET… be creative. do something different. there are too many products and services with "bundl" as a major part of the name, anyways.
i like to do free association to find interesting names… like how i found ‘albacore’ 🙂
for this project… let’s see… bundle… packages are bundles… "brown paper packages tied up with strings"… wire ties (i used to do construction work) … so there’s a name that’s a little more interesting: wire ties. or wireTies or WireTies or something like that.
get outside of the utilitarian mindset and find something creative. 🙂
@Derick I liked Combinatron myself 🙂 I definitely like creatively named projects, but I also like them to have some loose association with what they do.
Couldn’t agree more w/ Derrick about avoiding .net or Nxxx in names, entirely too many of those. I voted for Combinatron, it has a kind of sci-fi-y sound to it. It would be even better if you added [1-9]000 to the end of the name 🙂
@Alex Agreed, if I name it Combinatron, it is very likely some number will be applied to it. 🙂
@Harper Think about that in all lowercase in a GitHub repository 🙂
I would change my vote to "SquishIt" if I could – especially because of the lowercase github issue. 🙂
@Troy Yeah, maybe I’m being a prude. 🙂 I’ll add it to the poll, although it will have some ground to make up!
It seems that when I added SquishIt, it reset a bunch of the votes. So MicroPoll sucks, now I know.
I would call it Santa, cause it delivers packages.
Isn’t Combinatron a character in Michael Bay’s "Transformers 3: The Revenge of Bundlers"?
@Milan Yes, I believe it might be 🙂
ScriptMule – pack it up!
Baler as in "bale the hay", seems like a nice synonym. AFAIK it is not used in a computer context.
Nanofier was the first thing to mind.
Sorry i came a bit late. AssetPress is my suggestion.
Sorry, Squishit…. i just keep reading the last four letters. Also, dont rely of people to capitalize the I.
