Description Pádraig Brady 2012-09-17 08:49:48 EDT
The swift name conflicts with the binary in python-swiftclient,
and awkward to change because swift is a command line program
often used from scripts.

Note that swift-im is used in ubuntu for example.
Hopefully this will not impact too much, as it's
less likely that swift[-im] is used in scripts,
and be hidden from users as they would be using a launcher.

Ideally this change would be made on F17 and F18

Upstream fix for Debian
Comment 2 Jan Kaluža 2012-10-05 06:11:31 EDT
Upstream should release new version (which includes renamed binary) this weekend. It should have been released one week ago... I didn't want to build new packages just with this change, but if they won't release this weekend, I will do it.
