Ubuntu Versions and Nicknames

I cant seem to find the ubuntu versions and ubuntu nicknames in any one place so I will put together all that I have found online here.

Ubuntu versions are named after the year and month they were developed. For example Ubuntu version 8.04 was developed in April(the fourth month-believe it or not) in the year 2008. New Ubuntu versions are made every six months so the versions will always be named "[YEAR].04" or "[YEAR].10".

Now the nicknames:

Ubuntu 4.10 - Warty Warthog
Ubuntu 5.04 - Hoary Hedgehog
Ubuntu 5.10 - Breezy Badger
Ubuntu 6.04 - Dapper Drake
Ubuntu 6.10 - Edgy Eft
Ubuntu 7.04 - Feisty Fawn
Ubuntu 7.10 - Gutsy Gibbon
Ubuntu 8.04 - Hardy Heron

To bring it up to April, 2009, we can add:
"Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope".

My thanks as well. I was also looking for a list like this.

Cheers!
