What's a "Rivendell"??? Once a "product" is known, it works ("Google"?), but until its reputation takes hold, it's a crap-shoot as to whether it will become a household name.
I also like the technique of name mashups: Something like Rivian or Debindell (but those are a bit too close to "Purple" and "Pango"). So I'm all for the more descriptive names like "Rivendell on Debian". Boring, I know, but it gets the point across. Actually, ... I'm liking Rivian at the moment... :) ~David On 10/13/2016 09:05 AM, Cowboy wrote: > On Thursday 13 October 2016 09:28:20 am Seth Stevenson wrote: >> Rivendell Radio Automation Suite > > Misleading. > > The implication is that it's the supported OS, while you're talking > specifically about a main-line unsupported OS. > > Personally, I always favor naming things in a non-obfuscated, > non-ambiguous way, like Debian-Rivendell, or Rivendell4Debian which > leaves no doubt that this is for that specific OS and that it may, or > may not, behave like Rivendell on the supported OS. > > After all, if you install the Pango package, or Purple, what the > heck is that, what does it do, and why do I need or want it ?
