Bug Description

This project was forced to change its name because of a trademark assertion (see, so the package name, upstream URL in the package description, and possibly other references to the old name will need to be updated.

See Debian Bug #736331 <> and Red Hat Bug #1054340 <> for more details and discussion.

Changes to file paths might be appropriate, but would break several things, so some discussion about that will be needed, possibly with some symlinks for a few releases or some such. I expect the details are best worked out upstream in Debian rather than creating a delta, but it seems like we need a bug report on Ubuntu as well since changes may need to happen before the Trusty release, particularly since it's LTS.

This affects all versions of Ubuntu at this point, but it's probably most sane to only change things for Trusty and releases after that at this point, IMO. Upgrades from previous releases to Trusty or later should replace the old package with the new name (the Red Hat bug has lots of discussion about upgrade paths - it may be worthwhile to talk with Sam Kottler so Ubuntu/Debian end up with similar behavior to Red Hat/CentOS/Fedora in this respect).

This also affects the dependencies of several other packages, such as nagios3-common, icinga-common, shinken-common, and probably others.
