Since the application names are unique anyway, there is definitely no reason to differentiate between two different "Installer" applications; there is only one, and there will be only one in the future as well.

comment:3 by wkornewald, 12 years ago

I thought that some users will think of the package installer as the "Installer" and others will think of the OS installer.

comment:4 by wkornewald, 12 years ago

Maybe I misunderstood. Do you want to have only one installer and then have the devs guess which one the user meant or do you think that most users will only report bugs regarding the package installer, so we don't have to care about the OS installer (or the other way around)?

I'm open to changing the name if you devs think that something works well enough for you.

I just meant that the application named 'Installer' wasn't an option in the Applications category but it seems like I introduced a little ambiguity* in my description. Sorry about that. I agree with Axel.

*(the "suboption" part?)

Well, we now have only one Installer component. Shall I also add PackageInstaller?

comment:7 by jonas.kirilla, 12 years ago

I could be wrong but PackageInstaller doesn't seem to have been started in SVN yet. Perhaps it's better to wait, unless it's certain that it's going to be called PackageInstaller.

I also wouldn't mind to rename the application "Installer" to "SystemInstaller" or something like that.

That would be great! Could you please do that? I'll then add SystemInstaller and PackageInstaller as components.
