Software codenames are fun to refer to compared to numeral version numbers. In some cases, we decide a codename at the start of a new development cycle; sometimes, we decide the name at the time when we prepare for the public release. For every package, the codenames are decided based on a theme, for example, MMC codenames are mostly snacks names, and MCX codenames are mostly from physics terms. If you have a fun codename to suggest for our future releases, feel free to let us know. If we have more interesting codenames to choose from, we will do a vote.
MCX codenames are mostly terminologies from physics (except Ether Dome - which is a place). The first letter of each codename follows an alphabetic order.

MMC codenames were derived from the maintainer's favorite snacks. Many of them were made of two words, and the initials are not alphabetically sorted.

MCX-CL codenames follow the convention of MCX codenames - that is, the names are technology terms with the initial letter in alphabetic order. The first public release of MCX-CL (v2018) synchronized with the Dark-matter release of MCX, so it starts with a letter "D".
