this may be a minor issue, but it's bugging me so much that i had to
write it here. and please link me to any previous discussion if this
was asked before, i was kinda lazy to really search and
mention anything about it.
is there any rule on how to name packages ?
lets take clutter as an example. it's named "clutter" everywhere in
upstream, git, tarball, docs etc. but, it only builds libraries, and
names those libclutter* (and really is only usable as library)
so why are these (or only this?) packages named foo and not libfoo ?
ps. im here to fix, not flame :)
