That is the nature of acronyms. We can go for full descriptive names. I
tend to shy away from partial shortenings if possible. decserv just grates.
initprov is not so bad I guess. But one has to wonder what we are saving
over full names.
Are you prevented from using org.eclipse.equinox.osgi.provisioning? If
so, then org.eclipse.equionx.initialprovisioning seems like a good
choice. I don't think there's any great benefit in making the package
name shorter, other than a nod to the amount of extra space that would
be consumed by the permgenspace for the UFT8 constant.
Anyway, like I said, I'm open to suggestions. Remember that in general we
have a policy of coordinating the bundle name and the "dominant package"
name. That is, whatever bundle name we choose will likely be reflected in
various ways in the package names.
Speaking of which, what's up with the number of things prefixed with
'equinox'? Some items, like the provisioning, don't seem to be
particularly Equinox specific. There's also a point that some of these
OSGi-related services would happily run (and do) on different OSGi
engines; the name doesn't particularly help advertise the fact that
they're not Equinox- (or even Eclipse-) specific.
Having said that, I guess there's nothing we can do about that now.
