[jitsi-dev] please rename main jitsi binary


#1

As previously discussed (see
http://java.net/projects/jitsi/lists/users/archive/2012-05/message/65)
please consider renaming the main jitsi binary from run.exe to
something more obvious like jitsi.exe and providing a digital
signature, so that when security software like SEP asks the user what
to do, it's easier to understand what's happening.

This is the relevant part of the discussion from
http://java.net/projects/jitsi/lists/users/archive/2012-05/message/65
to set the scene:

">Symantec Endpoint Security (SEP)'s Network Threat Protection module
throws up a warning when Jitsi attempts to communicate with the
outside

world. Renaming the binary from run.exe to jitsi.exe (or something similar) would help users understand what's going on.

This has been on our todo list for a while. We just haven't got around
to it yet. Could you please open a ticket?"

Thank you

Alex

Hey Alexandros,

I am not sure I follow. Did you mean to comment on these discussions?
Because I only see citations from them and I am not sure why you are
reporting them. Did I miss anything?

Hello

I am just following the process to open a ticket. I've read a number
of times that before a ticket is opened, the issue _has_ to go through
the dev mailing list. So this is what I was doing.

Was expecting a "yes, go ahead and open a ticket" as a response before
opening the ticket.

I see. Sorry for the confusion. You already discussed your issues (on
our users list) so it's fine to just open them now.

Sorry again.
