Description Rob Kenna 2005-06-08 16:01:51 UTC
The fields of fence device input panel are very misleading. The "Hostname" should have been IP Address and the "Name" should have been something more obviously labelled (maybe "Label" or even "Hostname" ?). 2.2 "Name" rule is not well known. One thing we noticed is that it doesn't take "_" (say "star_war" got bounced back).
Comment 1 Jim Parsons 2005-06-08 16:18:50 UTC
The field names are not misleading in my opinion - they match the attribute values in the xml file that they are setting. That is where the names came from. Please don't think they were assigned in an arbitrary manner. That said, the field names are text strings in the glade file. they are easy to amend. I will set them to any value that is decided upon -- note, however, that if you change 'Hostname' to 'IP Address', the attribute in the xml file will still need to be 'hostname="value"', which may cause a disconnect in the minds of those who use emacs to touch up their configuration file.

The underscore issue was fixed and documented in another bz a long time ago, and since there wasn't any feed back to Jim's comment, I'm closing this.
