Hi,

I object to the omission of University (which I thought, based on the
previous email, had been determined to have meet the criteria).  If I
had known there would be a followup conversation, I would have
participated.

I still do believe that it meets all of the criteria.  In particular, it
meets this:

* The name must refer to the physical or human geography of the region
  encompassing the location of the OpenStack summit for the
  corresponding release.

It is short for "University of Shanghai for Science and Technology",
which is a place in Shanghai.  Here is their website:
http://en.usst.edu.cn/

Moreover, it met the criteria *before* it was enlarged to include all of
China.

The subtext of this name is that Shanghai is famous for its
Universities, and it has a lot of them.  Wikipedia lists 36.  The most
famous of which is Fudan -- the first institution of higher education to
be founded by a Chinese person.

It is, in short, a name to honor the unique qualities of our host city.
It deserves to be considered.
