I can't BELIEVE that I blew that. And that I didn't notice the
stupefyingly bad name (it should have been java-openmoko, as Mickey
suggested) in confirmation message. I can only blame myself for
rushing through the submission, as there is no valid explanation of why
I would type that name for the project.
Marcin - I like your suggestion better (the redundant "-openmoko" bugged
me, too, but I didn't want to just call it "java"), but prefer "java-"
as a prefix rather than "-java" as a suffix. I'll be resubmitting the
project later today (though I'm not sure Harald will let me through
again, given this track record :-)) as "java-pkg" unless someone
suggests a better name.
Koen & IRC guys - next time you catch something like that, please check
with the project admin to make sure that's really what they intended
before you fly off the handle. You can flush away a lot of credibility
by ranting about someone's "religion" without actually even talking to
that person first.
Everyone else - sorry for the bonehead mistake.
