Which policy? A few months ago I asked on several lists (including
-gnome) whether I could rename the package. No real arguments against
the renaming where given and it turned out that there is not really a
policy about the naming scheme. In fact I feared that more people would
protest against my plan to rename the package, but after all there was
only one person arguing against the renaming.
My arguments were (in short):
- name confusing and misleading
- name does not fit in the gtk-engines-foo naming scheme (because it is
in fact a KDE app not a Gnome one)
... and some other
I'm sorry you're disappointed by the name, but I don't intend to rename
