A question: Suppose the project's name is "pyfoo". (Like:
http://pyyaml.org/) If we had py_projectname, it would end up being
py_pyyaml. It looks a bit stupid. On the other hand, creating py_yaml
makes the catalog name not containing the project name. If I tried
doing pkg-get -a <projectname>, I wouldn't find the package. Which do
you think is better?
