Package names

Postby CrispinH » Tue Sep 16, 2008 11:05 am

Is there any particular reason why the .NET Executable package name should be limited to alpha characters (ie no whitespaces or numbers)?
I would prefer to be able to prefix the package name with the date eg:

2008 09 16 Packagname

but this is currently not possible.

The executable package name has to be a valid identifier in C# - so no whitespace, and only letters, numbers and underscores allowed. We've tried to lift as many restrictions as possible on the name in 6.0, but it will still have to obey the rules for C# identifiers for now.
