Package: ecosconfig
Version: 2.0-0pre2.1
Severity: minor

The ecosconfig package includes a GUI called "configtool". This is way
too generic of a name! Please rename this to ecos-configtool,
ecosconfig-gui or something similar.

Not only does being generically named clutter up the global namespace
unreasonably, as well as cause a lot of confusion for users, but it also
makes this eCos GUI configuration tool harder to find (e.g. ls
/usr/bin/ecos*, or $ ecos<tab> at the shell; I noticed it when I finally
said, "where is the GUI config tool?" and did dpkg -L ecosconfig).

Version: 2.0-0pre3+rm

The ecos package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/438756 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
