Hi guys, sorry I dont have a technical question today, but I am wondering, does anybody know what Eav stands for? I pass over it probably 100 times a day in the directory structure, and I am really curious. I am wondering if when I know the meaning it will be like one of those awe moments where suddenly the entire universe and all it’s mysteries makes sense. Or not, but either way I would really like to know.

Thanks for you help.
