I'm to blame.
Dragon naming theme was by brief vote: (wiki, irc #osm and irc #osm-de)
- Fuchur (German spelling of Falkor from Never Ending Story)
- Sarel (Sarel seemonster from Wielie Walie early kids show in ZA, Grant
- Draco (Latin for Dragon, Discworld)
- Norbert (Harry Potty)
- Idris (Ivor The Engine?)
- Puff (Puff the Magic Dragon, song.)
Server names are internal, being used to simplify administration. Naming
servers after the task they performed was becoming a pain.
Eg: "db"-old became "tileserv", which become "rails2", a new server
became "tileserv", which became "tile".
