Renamed to Apper

KPackageKit has been renamed to Apper. We should probably rename this page to "Apper" and add a redirect KPackageKit -> Apper.

This raises the question of how soon we should make such changes. I run Fedora 14, and KPackageKit is definitely still in the repo. I don't know whether it is renamed by F15, but a 6-month-old distro will still have a great many users.

There are several ways we could do this. I prefer to avoid redirects where possible, as they lead to spaghetti, but your suggestion is certainly one we should consider. Other than that, we could have a short statement about the renaming, specifying the point at which it becomes relevant, then a link to the new page. But how will users of the current app feel about that? I'm simply not sure of the best way to deal with this.

I have given this question a bit more thougt and have come up with a plan. Have a look here and see what you think. Feel free to add comments or suggestions.

I have modified my suggestion a bit. It is still messy, but there is probably no helping that.

I'm still trying to take it all in - no matter how we tackle it, the whole situation is messy. I think you are on the right lines, but an obvious problem is that we have to remember to come back to something 6 months or a year later. There's no way of setting up a reminder, so individuals would have to use their own diaries - not the best solution.

We probably need to think a bit longer, but I have no suggestions, atm.
