That one sounds good!

Discuss-gnustep mailing list

Forgot to include the reason behind suggesting "SambaPool" as a candidate AppName...

The original text from the posting that inspired my suggestion was:

    "this is to announce a beta feature that was requested by Steve Jordal,
    namely broadcast on the LAN to collect available domains. It is no
    longer necessary to enter a domain. The leftmost column of the browser
    displays the available domains.
The method is the same as in the
    script 'findsmb.' "

So, if the leftmost column in the browser view behaves as stated, then you could describe it as displaying a "Pool" (as in grouping) of SMB shares...

To tie the functionality of the application to its title, you could use a different meaning of "pool" (as in swimming pool) to present the concept of the application as behaving like a "springboard" for you to "dive in" to the "pool" of shares.

You could even use a diver with "SMB" printed on the back of the speedos as the logo icon... Hope you have a sense of humor, I've included the quick pic for laughs.    :-)
