On Wednesday, May 2, 2012, 17:35h UTC, a Kodi Forum thread titled XBMC 13.0 - codename "G?" was created to record suggestions for the codename to be used for what would become the v13 stable release of Kodi.

The Team has spoken

During November 2012, Ned Scott administered a poll on the popular Condorcet Internet Voting Service (CIVS) to determine the codename of the Kodi stable release which was to follow v12 "Frodo." At its conclusion on Thursday, November 22, 2012, 09:21h UTC with 36 total votes cast by Team Kodi members, "Gotham" was the Condorcet winner and became the codename for the subsequent release of Kodi v13. The results remain available for public inspection.
