Hi @maximbaz, I would prefer to having them merged.

Altough I understand your point, we decided to keep different repositories for both projects, named respectively umps2 and umps3. The umps name would not comply with our nomenclature, since it refers now to the first version of the software.

This is an educational software intended as study aid in university courses, so normally there is no reason to upgrade from v2 to v3, considering they are related to different academic years. This denomination would also help us to avoid any misunderstanding regarding which version the students should install.

Thank you.

Hi @mattiabiondi, usually people put version in package names only for older versions, so if you are planning to release v3, I would suggest keeping this package named umps that builds v3 and have a new package umps2 that builds v2. Then people who use umps get notified and upgraded to v3, and make explicit action if they want to stay on v2.

Should I cancel your merge requests, or do you still prefer me to approve them?
