In our software, we have the following nomenclature.
- new (inactive process)
- progressing (ongoing process)
- failed (finished process)
- done (finished process)
I'd like to rename those states using nouns instead of adjectives.
- ??? (inactive process)
- progress (ongoing process)
- failure (finished process)
- ??? (finished process)
What'd be a adequate alternative for the question marks? Preferably something not very lengthy so that the code looks nice. It's also possible to consider a different word as long as it reflects the actual state of its process (i.e. not started yet and run and fine).
My suggestion for new doesn't feel right at all: executability. It's a bit better in regard to done, though: success.
