I have been meaning to ask about this, as the current port is  
pureftpd, and mind is pure-ftpd.  All binaries are pure-ftpd, the only  
thing that is not is the webite.

The app is "Pure-FTPd".  When I work out this variant conflicts issue,  
what is the procedure for the fact there is an old per with the name  
of pureftpd, and I am going with pure-ftpd?

Where does it state the the correct naming conventions for laaunchd  

I never knew the name was supposed to resolve back to the reverse of  
the website.

What do you do on a hosted site, for example:

-> com.developersfiles.imagetool ?

Seems weird to hold them all under a domain that just hosts the  
files.  SF.net being one of them, but they at least use  

And then, all this is in macports, so maybe I should use
