As of 2007-05-07 we have 5 votes for Georgetown, and zero votes for Gaborone and Guatemala City. So, GeorgetownRelease it is!

-- PeterThoeny - 07 May 2007

At GeorgetownReleaseMeeting2009x01x19 we decided to use HelsinkiRelease as the next codename.

-- PeterThoeny - 19 Jan 2009

At HelsinkiReleaseMeeting2010x05x10 we decided to use IstanbulRelease as the codename for the upcoming release. Although not the capital of Turkey, it is the largest city of that country and a well known tourist destination.
