With funny capitalization, software command name may be OK but all lower case package name is not sensible thing to do. For all these X-GUI program, command file name are secondary value and menu entry has more impact to the user experience. Name grabbing by X-GUI program has little added values while contaminating name space. Some prefix to indicate group of X-GUI subclass will have real benefit. > I'm not trying to be recalcitrant; I just don't feel like going > through the trouble of renaming the packages without good reason.

Just add "gnustep-" as some other packages. Why not? Osamu PS: [TO: Miles Bader and other] reply-all must be used with care. Please do not reply-all to the original Evan Prodromou's message. *-email@example.com will close bugs.
