I'm inclined to agree, but nevertheless, hey, it's
summertime.

So, my suggestion is (in the spirit of GNU
inscrutability) "OTP Technical Platform". Or, why not,
"Open Technical Problem". To which one can add, after
a suitable pause, "Well, you did ask."

Best,
Thomas

PS. Or maybe "Oscar T. Peterson"? Warning: this could
drive jazz fanatics crazy.
