I’d like to request the alias
Gate for the snap
gate, on the app
gate. I’m not sure if describing it as
gate.gate even makes sense, because snapd doesn’t actually generate
gate.gate. If required, I can make the command
gate.Gate if it’s necessary for the store to use the
package-name.app format, but I’d prefer to avoid this because I’d also like
gate to remain available as well as
Gate, just for the people who might be new to Gate and not expect commands to be distinguished on capitalisation, and not have an avoidable
package.app entry if possible.
That paragraph might win an award for the most amount of gates ever said.
This request might sound unusual, but the capitalisation of the binary is important because tool used primarily via the CLI and with years of documentations and scripts that all have the big G.
Gate is a toolkit for physicists and biologists to simulate physical phenomenon. The upstream website is available at http://www.opengatecollaboration.org/
I believe usual requests would attempt to distinguish whether or not there could be confusion with the alias, but I think this request can probably skip that given the package name to begin with.
