The JACK developers don't handle binary packaging.  That is done by
CCRMA, SuSE, Red Hat, Debian, etc.  Each has its own process for
creating and naming packages.

In SourceForge (and Debian) there was already a different package
named `jack' (a combined CD ripper and encoder).  That is why the long
name (jack-audio-connection-kit) was selected.  There is a
`jack.spec.in' file in CVS, which seems mostly to be updated by Nando,
of Planet CCRMA fame.  It uses the name everyone agreed to.

I believe the name `jack-devel' is just wrong.  It *may* not even be
the connection kit package you think it is.  If SuSE really is
packaging the `jack-audio-connection-kit' under the name `jack'
someone should contact them and ask them to correct the error.
