Hi there,

I'd really like to know, which genius came up with the idea of renaming of dummy-$VERSION packages (and contained base-directory) to blankpackage-$VERSION

Maybe there *could* be a reason for this in new versions like 4.6.x, but for existing versions this is needless and useless. Moreover, everyone who does some installation automation will have to change a very simple rule to some weird database driven model, just to get the correct spelling of packages dependend on the respective revision.

Sorry, but I consider this the most useless and annoying change I've seen the last decade.

Mit freundlichen Gruessen
