SBo admins,

The discord maintainer has given permission to rename the SlackBuild to
something more specific like discord-beat or discord-brainwave.

Would you be able to make the change or would you like me to make the
change and submit it?

Once changed, I can submit my discord chat SlackBuild.

Hello, Jeremy!

Sorry for the delay in replying, I did not see your previous email. :-\

Ok, actually the "discord brainwave" is very specific program. I agree with

I allow you to rename the "discord" to "discord-beat" or
"discord-brainwave", "discord-any". At the time, I do not use slackware
anymore, So I cannot recreate the SlackBuild. But if necessary, I can edit
the script using a VM with slackware...

PS: sorry if you did not understand something, english is not my native

Just a follow-up, since I never received a response...

I'm looking at adding a SlackBuild for the chat program discord
<https://discordapp.com>, however, you already have a discord SlackBuild
for a completely different program. I've been struggling with what to name
my SlackBuild to aid users who like to do things from the command line
(like with sbopkg... being able to simply run *sbopkg -i discord*).

However, in looking at your app and what it provides, it seems like it is
probably very specialized and may not have a lot of users. Discord is
becoming quite popular for a chatting app, especially in the gaming realm
(although, my coworkers started one for a work project, which is why I
ended up getting involved with it and creating a SlackBuild). I was
wondering if you'd be willing to rename your program? I had thought of
or discord-binaural.

I already asked Willy if it is possible to rename an app with the
maintainer's permission and he said that is fine.

No worries if you don't want to rename yours. It was added first and I
would probably end up using something like discord-chat, but it just seems
that most people who would be searching for discord are likely going to
want the chat program, not a brainwave entrainment generator.

Thanks for your time
Jeremy (aka bassmadrigal if you're on LQ)
