Re: <DKIM> Re: GNOME Games source name

It may sound like I'm against changing the application's name, but I'm not: I'm against changing it for a weaker name. The name should be short, catchy and describe well the application, unfortunately no other name suggested  so far did all of these better than GNOME Games (GNOME Video Games is too long for example, making it sound dull IMO).

Flatpak for example is a really cool name, it's quite descriptive while being short and catchy, and it allowed Jakub to make an awesome icon out of it. If a name as good as this one is proposed, I'm not against changing.

With my Fedora packager hat on, a rename would make it easier in Fedora land as well.
Why? We have a @gnome-games package group, not a package; is it not possible for a package to have the same name as a package group?
No, not because of the group, but because we used to have a gnome-games package in Fedora in the past. We've now got other packages obsoleting gnome-games and the old package is blocked in the build system and so on, making it slightly more complicated. Nothing that can't be overcome of course, but I am sure a new name would make it slightly easier in other distros as well, along the same lines.
