I'd still prefer a "cleaner" policy, since AFAIK in Debian package names
are usually decided according to the "first come, first served" 
However, I don't care at all, as far as a policy is out (which we should
sponsor in the Teams/DebianFSO  page).
Now that we decided about the policy, I guess we also need to rename the
frameworkd Git repository  to fso-frameworkd ;-)

I should thank you, you were faster than me ;-)
