Description Matthew Barnes 2007-05-21 16:54:58 EDT
For Fedora 8 I would like to rename the "evolution-connector" package to match
the upstream name for this package ("evolution-exchange").  Most other Linux
distros ship this package under the original name.

As I understand it, the current name for this package is merely an artifact of
the package's original name ("ximian-connector") and we did not intentionally
avoid the name "exchange" for legal reasons.

I have already asked Red Hat's legal department if there are any issues with
using the name "exchange".  Mark Webbink replied with the following:

    "As long as it is only a package name, it should not be a problem.
    The name of a package buried within 1000s of other packages and not
    used to promote the overall offering (Fedora) would not likely rise
    to the level of trademark use."

Please advise on how the evolution-connector.spec file needs to be modified
before it can be renamed evolution-exchange.spec, as well as any other details I
need to attend to.

Matthew, have you read the section "Renaming/replacing existing packages"
in <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines>?
I think that should be a good starting point and hopefully sufficient
for your needs.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-05-27 07:46:48 EDT
Thanks, that does address my spec file question.

So now I'm just waiting for some CVS admin magic.

Please provide a propper request detailing what it is you want.
