"nodeos"? - Naming things is not a Game of Nerdiness
I'm asking you regulars:
How did the rename "eosiod -> nodeos" slipped through?
There should be governance-procedures, which safeguard the EOS product from user-facing mistakes (smaller or bigger).
"nodeos" implies "A node.js based Operating System".
It moves totally away from "eos", which becomes invisible, especially for newcomers.
And even worser:
"nodeos" is an existent(!) product, and guess what it is:
Yep, a node.js based Operating System
We all make mistakes, but I really think that this naming related mistake should be corrected quickly. Some more info within:
[PRODUCT] Concise Naming of Things
And of course: there should be standard-procedures, e.g.:
In order to change a user-facing name (products, executables, commands etc.), follow this procedure strictly:
- the rename suggestion must be filed on public-project (e.g. repo)
- it must include rationales
- A topic is posted on eosgo.io
- await 7 calendar days
- if there is no veto or justified objection (e.g. name collision), the rename can go through.
