[low] "Mate" should be "MATE"

Very minor thing, the project capitalises the word as “MATE”:

Over here it’s written as “Mate”:

From what I understood, is that Mate is named after an existing South African word and it isn’t an acronym like GNOME.
But @manuel already changed it.

and it is Maté not mate :stuck_out_tongue:


True, although

is not MATE. :wink:

True; but as per the MATE home page, it is named after the herb and the beverage.

Where does the name come from?

The name “MATE” , pronounced Ma-Tay , comes from yerba maté, a species of holly native to subtropical South America. Its leaves contain caffeine and are used to make infusions and a beverage called mate.



Sure. I don’t really mind which one is used, but the project uses the word “MATE” on their pages. It’s similar to XFCE vs Xfce. First one is in common use, second one is correct.
