[alpine-devel] [RFC] package name policy change

From: Natanael Copa <ncopa_at_alpinelinux.org>

Hi,

I would like to propose a new package naming policy that simply forbids
use the characters that needs to be url encoded to be used in an url.

The reason is simply that those chars makes web services from scripts
slightly more complicated. We already had an issue[1] with this.

For example:

pkgname=gtk+2.0
wget http://example.com/someservice?pkgname=$pkgname

Does anyone have anything against this change?

Other comments?
