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


I agree that evolution-data-server should be named better to convey that
it is a framework for the entire Desktop, not just Evolution. 

Not now, though.  Let us focus our energies on making it more useful and
usable.  Let us  document the  APIs, write tutorials  and make its adoption
easier on the Desktop.

Do continue thinking about  cuter and more appropriate names :). We
need them one day.  A good dressing is a must but let us get the cake
ready first

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.
