Re: Renaming our Xen packages

Any comments on this?

May I propose that we rename our Xen package directories and package names so that it's obvious which version it is just by looking at the package listing and/or directory name. This is what I mean:

xen12:        shouldn't this be removed? If not, rename to xen12-kernel
xentools12:    shouldn't this be removed? If not, rename to xen12-tools

xenkernel20:    rename to xen20-kernel
xentools20:    rename to xen20-tools

xenkernel3:    rename to xen31-kernel
xentools3:    rename to xen31-tools
xentools3-hvm:    rename to xen31-tools-hvm

xenkernel33:    rename to xen33-kernel
xentools33:    rename to xen33-tools

All these packages, when installed, are just xen-{kernel,tools}-VERSION, e.g.


I don't think this would be a problem as we already have CONFLICTS in place so only one version can be installed.
