The 031274 message was an overreaction by me, but I should have added
more test to the new request.
Creating 6 new packages and making sure they build takes time, when I
submitted the new merge requests I had little time left.
Here's a long version :
The old scheme was pkgname_without_git-lw-git . It looked confusing and
wasn't clear enough.
By changing to lone_wolf-$pkgname the name scheme looks a lot more
consistent and the package is clearly linked to my aur/forum nick.
I tried to think of clearer naming but couldn't find a way to do that in
less then 8 words, which would make the package names consist of 10 to
In my opinion lone_wolf-$pkgname is the best compromise between clarity
Thanks for the reminder, Daniel .
