Subject[RESEND] Please consider name next Linux release "I love Linux" (Re: Linux 5.19)

Could you please consider name the next Linux release (5.20 or 6.0) "I
love linux" ? The number "5.20" is a wordplay in Chinese, which means "I
love you" [1], thus "Linux 5.20" can be read as "I love Linux" in Chinese.

Even if next kernel version is 6.0, I think it's probably a good idea
for both Chinese-speakers and non-Chinese speakers to express our love
to Linux Kernel.

The name of Linux kernel release has a long history of play-on-words
[2]. For example, 5.15 is named "Trick or Treat" and 5.17 is named
"Superb Owl".

Thanks and regards,
