Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

The ubuntu package for the browser epiphany is named "epiphany-browser", which is cool, but why the hack is the package named "epiphany" a game? I think the browser is more important, so why not rename the game to "epiphany-game" and make the name "epiphany" a synonym for "epiphany-browser"?

Since there is an open upstream bug, I left this issue open. I doubt this will ever happen though.

there is no way to rename that without having users who use the game get the webbrowser on upgrade instead of what they use

okay so this is a tricky or even impossible issue.. too bad only that both need to have the same names, I mean there's a lot of possible combinations for names of new pieces of software. maybe the game developers should think about renaming the game, because the browser actually seems to be the bigger project to me.

13+ years have passed without any comment or change so maybe 'Opinion' is now appropriate.
