Re: On new names for "Deity"
I see the problem. Most people using this will be seeing a GUI of
some sort. May I suggest that the new name for deity be
"administration/packaging tool" or "apt" for short.
[acronym not specifically intended but perhaps appropriate.]
This means that any distributions can use this: the phrase is
generic so non-copyright. Any manual for any software distribution
can refer to this directly e.g. "the administration/packaging tool
can be accessed by clicking on ..." and apropos "administration"
"packaging" or "tools" could give a pointer.
If you inadvertently close the icon/GUI, then perhaps typing "apt"
could reopen this.
This is fine for English: any localisation efforts can simply
translate the phrase into the appropriate language. As for the
icon, I suggest a big red box with yellow ribbons or a brown paper
package tied up with string.
I'm currently learning Arabic, so see the problems for non-English
speakers / non-English script only too clearly.
Yes, I'm wasting time/bandwidth when I could be helping the project -
but I am a _very_ nervous neophyte and any package I take wouldn't
be ready for prime time for months.
