Somewhere in the distant past, we had a rule that to rename a package, all
that's needed is a CVS Request. I'd like that to be reintroduced. I don't
think dropping that rule was ever really discussed, it just vanished some
day. It doesn't make sense to require a rereview just for a name change
when any other updates (including things like adding subpackages and
Obsoletes - and no, I'm not suggesting to force rereviews for all that
stuff, it wouldn't scale!) are allowed. IMHO even a quick review on the ML
is too much overhead for something as trivial as a name change.
