Mer-based MeeGo Community Edition now named "Nemo"

Via: @Jaffa2

Editor: Andrew Flegg

Carsten Munk, guardian of Mer and a member fo the MeeGo Community Edition Steering Group, chaired an online meeting where the future direction of the MeeGo Community Edition was discussed. Of the minutes, the most immediate change was that it was decided the new project name is Nemo, non-namespace-clashing usage should be found and slogan.

The name has sea-related connations, but emphasises that despite many of the same people being involved, it's a separate project and should not be seen as "the" Mer distribution and user interface.
