I'm not aware of any documentation like that upstream (but it wouldn't surprise me). Regardless, it's a minor thing for us, just as long as there's a smooth transition / both are supported for a while (e.g., a fallback symlink). > The only caveat is that renaming a package in Debian means it needs to > go through NEW, so it might take a while for the update to be processed. > (We still have plenty of time though) > > Best, > James > > On 08/08/17 09:20 PM, Scott Ritchie wrote: >> I suggest changing the name, at least one article on the bad taste >> vulnerability misattributed the fault to Gnome developers.
