Bug#441200: libconfig name clash
* Ian Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org) [071128 03:25]:
> [Option D:]
> (1) The existing libconfig in Debian may retain its name.
> [Options X and N:]
> (1) The existing libconfig in Debian must be renamed or removed.
> [Option N:]
> (2) The newer library may use the name libconfig.
> [Options X and D:]
> (2) The newer library may not use the name libconfig.
> [All options:]
> (3) A maintainer who is refused the use of the name
> `libconfig' is invited to suggest one or more new
> name(s), within 14 days of this resolution.
> (4) If after that no member of the TC objects to a name within 7
> days (counted from the maintainer's suggestion), then the
> package is entitled to the name.
> (5) Even if a TC member objects, if the TC does not pass
> a resolution vetoing the new name within 28 days, the
> package is likewise entitled to the new name.
> (6) This process applies to each package rejected the use
> of the name `libconfig' by (1) and/or (2) above; it
> applies to library names, filenames, package names, and all
> similar names and identifiers.
> (7) Suggestions and objections are to be sent to this bug.
What are the reasons to also vote about a procedure for the new name,
and not leave that to the default mechanismns?
