New name for the mx-installer

#1 Post by dolphin_oracle » Wed Apr 11, 2018 1:26 pm

There is an effort under way re-unify the installer code base between antiX and MX, and give the installer some new tricks both on the user side and the developer/maintainer side.

But

We need a new package name for the installer, as they are currently

antix-installer

and

mx-installer

Creative names, right?

anyway, Please post any name suggestions you may have. Its not strictly speaking limited to function, it could have a totally strange name, as with “ubiquity” or “calamares”. The idea is to have one name, without the “antiX” or “MX” lablels.

Just be aware that this is a brainstorming excerise, and that there is no guarantee that we will use any name submitted. But believe me, naming ideas are welcome!

Thanks.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.
