Re: Application name strings consistency

I disagree. For some time I've argued that we should drop the "GNOME".
Reasons for this:

1. App names should be consistent.
2. We generally don't expect users to know what GNOME is.
3. There are other, better, places we can advertise the project, if that's
what we want to do.

But names also need to sufficiently identify the named item. Ending up with
5 "Clocks" and 4 "Maps" in gnome-software isn't really the best user

And, before you ask: filtering for GNOME core apps would require a
black/white list inside every single app store, which is a solution
that does not scale. :-)
