[Exherbo-dev] Naming of repositories (::x11)

Given that packages like wayland are emerging and we now have it in
::desktop, we need some discussion about repository naming.
We had a discussion in #exherbo about the right place for wayland and
found out, it wouldn't fit in ::x11 because it has nothing todo with x11
itself. Mesa also is in ::x11, which doesn't make sense anymore.
My proposal for this:
::x11 is only for x11 itself and it's pakages
::desktop needs to be thought about
<name here> would fit for packages like wayland, mesa, glu, etc.
Where <name here> could be ::desktop, ::gui or something like that.
I know that this change will affect a lot of packages and needs some
work, but if we want to have a consistent naming schema, we should have
to do this renaming and moving. That's why I ask about it here and I'd
like to see your proposals.
Cheers, Arne Janbu
