Bartłomiej Piotrowski proposed packaging standard changes:
if there are 2 versions of some package foobar, then older version (1.0
for example) must be named as foobar1-1.0 and newer version (2.0 for
example) must be named as foobar-2.0.

I did not see such rule yet on
page, but my package openjpeg2 was silently removed with this reason
however there are gtk* and wxgtk* packages that also violate this

I insist on giving me proof-link for this rule, including this rule
into wiki
and renaming all packages according this rule.

Or just leave it as is and stop dropping my packages.
