This might be confusing to old people. PLIP is a protocol for
transporting IP packets over the parallel port.


Hi Simon,

I agree that the name is a bit ambiguous, but I see a couple
of reasons why it is still might be ok:

- aptitude search plip shows only hplip, which has nothing to do with
 parallel port as well.
- plipconfig is provided by net-tools package, and I think
 it is not likely that somebody will create a package for parallel
 port ip protocol software only.
- it is not a python library to call it python-plip.
- any 4 letter name is ambiguous and currently
 there are ~ 790 such packages.

And honestly, being old doesn't mean using old technologies :)

After the discussion with the upstream, I think I can rename it to


The problem is that I've already created the repository:


Which should be renamed in this case.

What is the correct way to do it ?

Thank you,
