Re: RFE: Use generic names in packages



good packaging guideline for Fedora to follow which is to avoid using
the "Fedora" name as much as possible in package names and files with
exceptions like "Fedora directory server" and recommend using generic
names wherever possible.

I have a couple of review requests which may be affected by the
outcome of this discussion. Specifically whether one should append
"fedora-" to the names of the *.desktop files or use the "X-Fedora"
category in the *.desktop files installed by these packages in
/usr/share/applications ?

I have seen:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/SteeringCommittee/Meeting-20061026
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/DesktopFiles
but not sure what the final decision is. These seem to drafts or
"decisions to be taken".

Happy hacking,
Debarshi
