RFE: better name for xfce-polkit
Last modified: 2015-11-12 11:24:58 EST
I would like to make a suggestion.
-bash-4.3$ rpm -qa | grep -i "polkit"
That is the current output of the packages installed on my system (yes polkit-gnome got removed just after that output).
As you see there seem to be some sort of naming convention (as I would describe it) for postfix'ing all packages with polkit-*
It would be nice to have xfce-polkit renamed to polkit-xfce to fit better into this convention.
This is a backported package build from SRPM for Fedora 22... in case you wonder why there is such a package.
Sorry, xfce-polkit is the original upstream name. Besides it's another separate upstream and *not* a part of that official polkit upstream. Therefore I do not want to change.
Kevin, what do you think about this?
I don't see any need to change the name.
If you can convince upstream to change we could follow suit, but it seems like a lot of makework. ;)
Sorry again, but a name change does not make any sense to me.
