What Will Follow OpenStack Havana?

OpenStack - RoundedFrom the 'open source naming' files:

The current OpenStack open source cloud platform release is named Grizzly - due to the fact that OpenStack had a Summit in San Diego, which is in California, which has a Grizzly bear on its flag.

The next release of OpenStack is codenamed Havana, which an unincorporated community in Oregon where the last OpenStack Summit in Portland was held.

So what will the next release of OpenStack be called? The next Summit is in Hong Kong so something China related?

The four candidates currently being voted on by the OpenStack community are:

* Icehouse
* Ichang
*Inverness

In case you were wonder, all of those names are streets in Hong Kong.
