You're the one who's adamant about renaming the directories so that the
new release is called like the old release.  You're not taking any
concern into account nor any suggestion besides your own.  Instead you
are just beating every other POV with a stick.
I'm going along with changing the directory names, so what's your share
for a compromise?
