Default Bug#687103: ITP: maps -- OpenStreetMap client for the GNOME Desktop

FYI, the “bloat of GNOME libraries” (libgnome, libgnomecanvas,
libgnomeui, libgnomeprint…) have all been deprecated before the squeeze
release.

With that in mind, your sentence looks like complete nonsense.

On my almost-only-core squeeze development chroot:

Need to get 46.8 MB of archives. After unpacking 123 MB will be used.

On my almost-only-core sid development chroot:

0 packages upgraded, 143 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not

Between evince and evince-gtk, there are 3 differences in squeeze:
- GConf → gone away in sid
- GNOME keyring → it is a mere wrapper on a DBus interface
- Nautilus → the dependency is only for the nautilus plugin itself

We could remove evince-gtk and split the Nautilus plugin in a different
package (evince-nautilus), and you would almost not notice any
difference.

No, one package in the archive with a misleading name doesn't mean
we should have more! See also: gnuplot, not related to GNU, and no
doubt many more.

I like dropping 'gnome', and not doubling-up map, but osm may not
be clear enough to those who aren't intimately involved, how about
openstreetmap-client?

Yes, or maybe that one dependency could be relaxed to a suggest (actual
GNOME users would have it pulled in by other packages anyway), or I can
simply suppress that one remaining annoying (to me) recommendation left.

I am happy that Evince no longer is bloated.

But this thread really is about naming of a tool, and my argument stand
that it seems useful also outside a GNOME context.

You also do not call it evince vs. evince-gnome :-)

In my opinion it might make sense to use -gnome for a flavor of a
package that has some enhancements specifically for use with GNOME, and
-gtk when using the GTK+ widgets (i.e. optimal for use with GNOME and
XFCE, but less so with KDE (since it uses Qt).

Yes, I am fully aware that Qt apps can look nice together with GTK+
apps, but some are interested not only in the looks but also resource
use, and loading *both* GTK+ and Qt consumes more resources.

In the case of gnome-* this is not just "one" package.
gnome-split ? gnome-gpg ? gnome-icon-theme-dlg-neu ?
gnome-shell-timer ? (and dozens of similarly named packages)...

Let's acknowledge that the gnome-* prefix means "to be used mostly in
the GNOME Desktop environment" and not "officially endorsed by GNOME".
Or something like that.

The fact that it uses only gtk may change in the future; I do not know
about that, but if upstream thinks it works with gnome and not gtk, even
if it works with both at the moment, we should not expect a gtk-only
application in the future.

Sincerly,

I really like this! I do like it specifically because I do not think
that package names of user oriented applications need any extra hint to
the toolkit / programming language / desktop environment because it
requires extra knowledge of the user (Hint: You can perfectly run a
Debian (derivative) without knowing about gtk/qt gnome/kde).

Aren't you poaching in "openstreetmap"'s namespace now?
