then I think it would be sensible to let the source package be named
"enlightenment". This is also how upstream names their source package:

It would also make things easier (by not having to go through the binary-NEW
queue every time a new upstream release happens) if the binary package
containing e would be named "enlightenment" as well. I don't think there is a
use case for being able to install e17 together with e19 or some such.

right, I totally missed the last sentence of §5.6.1.


cheers, josch
