[Starlingx-discuss] Re-branding wrsroot proposal

I guess I'm less concerned about using stx or starlingx than others. Obviously "wrs" is bad since it is tied to a company. But it seems common practice to use the project name for the default user (think nova, neutron, glance, etc...).

Yes, there is concern about using stx in the name, as mentioned in my 
initial email we want to avoid stx, root, starlingx, it should remain

not be meaningful.
