Why the name?
“An IT-etymology/linuxguistics page for people wondering "how come the package yasysmand-cling has such a strange name?"
Giving cryptic names to software is a well-established UNIX tradition, and the explanations are often missing from the documentation, either because the developers imagine it's obvious (usually wrongly) or because they think nobody cares (and here they're usually right, or it would turn up as FAQ material). ”
