But the name sucks.

You're welcome to use the software, apply patches which relabel it to front-end users and start attracting sheeple to your GNU herd or whatever ;)

The freedom of free software, isn't it awesome?

Honestly, I doubt developers hesitate to patch things because of the project's name. I agree end users might care what their service is called. But then again, we have _many_ users who don't use "GNU social" but use "Quitter" instead (still fully interoperable).

Of the many "Quitter" themed sites, the logo isn't even a GNU (as with the qvitter GNU social plugin they're developing[1]) but two chillin' out maxin' birds instead.

But thanks for the enthusiastic suggestion. :)
