This is a simple tool to automate the testing of project names at the
most common Open Source / Free Software hosting environments.
Each new project requires a name, and those names are ideally unique.
To come up with names is hard, and testing to ensure they're not
already in use is time-consuming - unless you have a tool such as this
The script, as-is, contains a list of sites, and patterns, to test
If those patterns aren't sufficient then you may create your own
additions and add them to the script. If you wish to have your own
version of the patterns you may save them into the file ~/.namecheckrc
The most recent version of this script may be found here:
