Re: [Evolution-hackers] Rename e-d-s

Who is "people"?

Most people just install their distro or use their distro's tool to install software, it handles any dependencies for them, so the name of the package is irrelevent.

Seems like a lot of effort to change eds for no real purpose.

Hello all,

I am sorry if this has been brought up before, but a google search of
the archives didn't turn up anything.

Basically, people are getting confused at the similar naming between
e-d-s and evo. They don't quite understand that while evo depends on
e-d-s, the server is not actually part of evolution.

Thus my recommendation is to rename e-d-s to something non-evolution,
to make clear that it is more than just evolutions's-data-server.

My thought was gnome-data-server, but there are lots.



PS. Yes, you can start shooting me know if this is crack.
