- Subject: [RFC] Renaming the GtkSourceView namespace from GtkSource to Gsv
For GtkSourceView 3.90, there is a plan to rename the namespace from
GtkSource to Gsv:
Because the current namespace (GtkSource, or gtk_source in lowercase)
conflicts with the GTK+ one.
But I have never heard complaints from GTK+ developers.
So the question is: does it worth the big API churn? Or do you think it
is OK to continue using the GtkSource namespace?
Another element to take into account: GtkSourceView doesn't show the
good example, although it is a widespread library, so external
developers might create other libraries that also conflict with the Gtk
namespace. Example: GtkSpell.
PS: it is not me who created GtkSourceView, I started contributing much
later, so the namespace conflict isn't my fault, I prefer to clarify.
