Description Nick Coghlan 2012-09-08 01:27:52 EDT
To avoid a nameclash with perl-pip (I assume), the python-pip package installs the CLI as "pip-python" rather than as "pip".

By contrast, perl-pip uses the same name for both the package *and* the CLI.

The reversal in the Python version (package python-pip, CLI pip-python) seems unnecessarily confusing. It would be easier to remember if the CLI used the same order as the package.
Comment 1 Nick Coghlan 2012-09-08 01:36:30 EDT
Changed suggestion to aliasing, since an abrupt rename would break scripts that expect the reversed name on Fedora.
Comment 2 Tim Flink 2012-09-13 01:31:07 EDT
I guess that I hadn't really looked at the differences between perl-pip and python-pip all that much or noticed the discrepancy between the package and binary name.

I have a bunch of packaging work to do as soon as F18 alpha is released - I'll add the alias then and leave both of them for a couple of releases before phasing it out for F19 or F20.
