Hi,

There's a package "nginx-0.8" in Factory. Yes the NAME includes
"-0.8", including the dot. Why isn't the package simply called
"nginx"? It's really counter intuitive to find it that way. It's
obviously not made for parallel installation either.


It should be 0.9 ... ;)

no it shouldnt. 0.9 is unstable.

and yes, IMHO it should be just called "nginx"

no it shouldnt. given upstream has the habit of maintaining up to 3
branches in parallel, we started to maintain them in that naming scheme,
to avoid having to rename packages everytime upstream opens a new
branch.
