Dear all,

I would like to suggest the overall description in abbreviation:

GR.PY.SYS - GnuRadio Pyton System

Easy to Remember. Pronounce. One syllable. Name raises the level (of already excellent content) ...

The only strong opinion I have is an objection to the substring "rpm" due to potential confusion with existing RPM installation utilities.

GRAB is nice. GRMM too.

Other possibilities are GRIP/GRIM: GnuRadio Installation and Packages/Modules

it doesn’t really need to be gnu radio specific --
it was written to work with any such light weight recipes that follow
standard git/cmake or other common or custom format

this name makes me cringe horribly
"installation tool" isn't really a fair characterization since it is
setting up a development environment
apt-get or standard binary installs are more "installation tool"

I like grpm --
other similar possibilities:

rmm - radio module manager
grmm - gnu radio module manager
gmm - gnuradio module manager
spm - SDR Packager Manager
spm - spm package manager

personally in favour of something short and functional vs cutesy and
contrived (we already have one of those names)
three letter package managers seem to be relatively common practice in FOSS

examples:    apt, rpm, pip, gpm, npm, ...

GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
