Hello Charles,

thanks for you answer. I red with interest you suggestions and your argument seems to be very reasonable for me.
I hope it will end in some improvement in debian policy.
This renaming practices make things really confusing, but I am not experienced enough to be sure what solution is best.
Anyway at least "Debian universal best practices" paper would be great.
I just thinking what I will write to upstream, how I will describe problem and what I will want to be changed or improved from him. To have this things clear would be great.
Such paper would save a lot of resources.

best regards
