?? AFAIK all Debian packages have to have lowercase package names.

None of my GNUstep packages install helper scripts into /usr/bin
anymore. It was too much of a pain to maintain.

All of them use "GNUstep" as menu hints.

Because the other packages prefixed with "gnustep-" are part of the
official GNUstep project. Also because if I do it now, and later it's
decided that GNUstep application packages have to be named "*-gnustep"
or "*.app", I have to rename the packages again.
