Hello, I'm trying to name a library project, and I'd like crowd answer to that question: If you were to rename "SDKMAN" to a non androcentric alternative, apart from "SDKWOMAN", which names would you consider? Thanks in advance for any help and your time if it's worth it simple smile (Note that I'm not considering renaming "SDKMAN", but I'd like to name a project similarly, where "SDK" is replaced with something else, and "MAN", well, replaced as well with something more inclusive that still sounds right).

I guess MAN comes as a shortcut for MANAGER, not as a human male… So to replace that I would use something like ASSIST or PAL (don’t know if this is gender related), HELPER could be another option. In your example: SDKASSIST, SDKPAL or SDKHELPER :)

Ditto... This has nothing to do with gender. MGR is you want an alt abbreviation...

Yeah, but
SDKMGR
doesn't exactly roll of the tongue.
SDKPAL
sounds nice to me.
