Apparently, not everyone agrees with you ... I used to have a boss who
would tell me, "Perception *is* reality". IOW, doesn't matter if the
releases don't *officially* have the code name .. since (almost)
everyone refers to them by the code name, effectively speaking, they
*do* have the code name.

Which would explain the article writer's statement. In his mindset,
the code name applies to ALL the releases of a certain number. Me, I'd
rather remember 7.04, 7.10, etc than "Is this Gibbon? Is it Hardy?"
