Regarding this, I think the upgrade from freeipa to ipa should be looked into carefully, since I experienced problem o post-upgrade script not being run upon upgrade from freeipa-*-4.0 to ipa-*-4.1

Consistency sounds good.

How would the name change affect yum update?

Subject:        [Freeipa-users] Rename or not to rename (packages only)?
             freeipa-server -> ipa-server?
Sent by:

Hello users and developers,

I wonder what do you think about naming inconsistency in FreeIPA packages.

Packages in Fedora are prefixed with freeipa-* but in RHEL (and
the packages are named as ipa-*. Given that command line interface is in
cases 'ipa', it seems like a inconsistency.

Are there any reasons not to rename freeipa-* *packages* to ipa-*?

Naturally name of project would still be FreeIPA :-)

This rename would remove the inconsistency which drives me crazy when I
to script something universally for RHEL and Fedora.

Have a nice day!
