Re: [ovirt-users] why is it called vdsm?

2015-02-16 Thread Sven Kieske
Well I would like to not call it ovirt-agent because there already
is the ovirt-guest_agent, so they could get confused by new users.

I really don't know if a new name is necessary at all.
What do you think are advantages?
Disadvantages are:
1. waste of time for searching a new name (already happens in this
discussion).
2. breakage if you search for the old/new name : you might
end up with just half the relevant results because you used the
old/new name.

I didn't know at all the origin of the acronym, but I already knew what it
does... so no value added in my opinion

Isn't the guest agent already called ovirt-agent?

   Why is it called vdsm and not something a little more descriptive and
   project-related, like ovirt-agent?
   Well, we could think of a rename for oVirt 4.0 :)
  
   Not 100% joking: besides being a bit more google-friendlier, that  could
   solve
   the packaging troubles and make old-vdsm and
   new-vdsm-or-whaterver-we-may-call-it
   trivially parallel installable on a given host.
 
 Well, that was going to be my next question -- can we rename it?

 Indeed. In addition to not being descriptive or helpful, vdsm rhymes /
 sounds like (especially if said quickly) something we shouldn't
 talk about in a professional setting. This may only be true for
 native English speakers, and I believe vdsm originated in Israel.
 It's not a label that would have originated in the US due to it
 not being work-friendly.
 
 That awkwardness aside, ... ovirt-agent will be better for marketing,
 Google searches, etc.
