"Raphael Bossek"
 
Default Idea for package name instead of "build" (ITP)

Hi folks,

I intent to package (ITP) the http://codesynthesis.com/products/xsd/
tool set (XSD: XML Data Binding for C++). To get the packaging working
a special build environment has to be installed, called "build"
(http://kolpackov.net/projects/build/). To do so, I've to package the
"build" package first.

Now I'm looking for a idea how to name the "build" package. For my
perspective of view is "build" to simple to be packaged as it is. My
idea was to sue the first letters (forename, surname) of the
developer, e.g. bkbuild.

Due to the less spread of the "build" tool set I thing it should not
be a big problem for people who search for it in Debian.

Since it seems to generate makefiles, I suggest Automake :-)

But, slightly more seriously "mentioning" Gnu Make might also be a
possibility: e.g. gmbuild or mkbuild or makebuild or mfbuild.

It's unclear to me what your answer has to do with the question.
AFAICT, Raphael was asking for feedback on how to name some random build
system with the pretty generic name `build', and you recommended some
alternatives instead.

Sorry, I guess I was not very clear. I meant to suggest that since the
build system called "build" is really a makefile generator for GNU
Make, that it might be helpful if the Debian package name could hint
at that fact. The rest of my message was suggestions for names. Upon
reflection, not only was the idea not so well expressed, but relationship
with GNU Make could be better expressed in the short description.

OK, I think I have generated enough noise on this issue.
