Description Dan Burcaw 2002-07-09 17:17:15 EDT
Both dateconfig and serviceconf (and perhaps other packages) provide
redhat-config-* modules.  Why not rename these packages redhat-config-date
and -services, etc. to reflect this? This level of consistancy is something
that Red Hat often lacks, and it would be nice to see it! :-)
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2002-07-10 15:54:54 EDT
I agree.  I suggest you file a separate bug report for serviceconf, though.  It
is maintainted by someone else who will most likely not see this bug report
since it can only be filed against one component. 

I plan to rename dateconfig to redhat-config-date.

I also maintain ksconfig, and I plan to rename it to redhat-config-kickstart.
Comment 2 Dan Burcaw 2002-07-10 16:05:47 EDT
Great! I opened a seperate bug for serviceconf. Out of curiosity,
can I expect this name change within the current cycle of rawhide
development? Or is this someting slated for a future cycle?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-07-10 16:15:51 EDT
I'm going to check with the guys in release engineering to see how much pain
would be involved with changing the names in the current cycle.  The way I see
it, the change needs to be done, and waiting until a future cycle just amplifies
the pain.  We'll see what they say.  ;)
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-07-10 16:23:15 EDT
They said it was ok for this release, so I'll try to get this done today.
Comment 5 Dan Burcaw 2002-07-10 16:34:31 EDT
Excellent! This pleases me greatly.  Now if I can push your
collegue (serviceconf and maybe printconf) in this direction :-)
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-07-10 18:06:52 EDT
Ok, the name switch is done.  I will push the new packages through the build
system tomorrow morning and they should appear in Rawhide sometime soon.  I
think the other packages should be renamed as well.  Just keep nagging them.  ;)

I'm going to close this report now since the work is done on my end.  Thanks for
your report and thanks for doing the Limbo.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2002-07-11 11:35:03 EDT
The packages have been run through the build system now.
