Description

This is related to Feature #574. The commands unix2nt_* should be renamed to something else. My current suggestion is unix2ms_*

  • Target version changed from 6.6.1 to 6.7.0

This doesn't really fit in with the goal of a pure bug-fix release. Deferred.

  • Target version changed from 6.7.0 to 6.8.0

  • Target version changed from 6.8.0 to 6.8.1

#6 Updated by Eric Bohm almost 2 years ago

  • Target version changed from 6.8.1 to 6.9.0

#7 Updated by Michael Robson almost 2 years ago

  • Target version deleted (6.9.0)

#8 Updated by Sam White about 1 year ago

Is this still an issue? If not, close it.

#9 Updated by Evan Ramos 7 months ago

While the operating system as a whole no longer contains NT in its name, I believe the kernel is still called the "NT kernel", so keeping NT in the name is as valid as calling macOS "Darwin" or GNU/Linux "Linux".

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

Seems like an unnecessary change, rejected (but feel free to over-ride if you have strong opinions on this...)
