Re: Does a package name have to match path names?
> 1) Package name changes
existing users will not get the new package. This means there ought to be a
package with the current name which is just there to smooth the upgrade path.
Think about people who use only stable Debian releases (yes, they do exist).
> 2) File locations change on upgrade
no big deal.
> 3) Name is quite generic
only a problem if there are other smalltalk implementations in Debian. I
would probably name it gnu-smalltalk to ensure against conflicts.
