I've decided to rename MathematiK to Kantor (after Georg Cantor, the creator
of set theory). I have a local checkout where the names are replaced, but
what's the best way to commit it? Should I first commit the renamings, then
rename the subdir in playground/edu (and move to kdereview at a second
moment), or should I just skip the renaming of the subdir, and directly move
trunk/playground/mathematik to /trunk/kdereview/kantor? What's the best way to
do this renaming? How about the translations (at which point should
messages.sh export to kantor.po istead of mathematik.po?) Is there anything
else that needs to be done?
