    Who wants Compose package name to be changed from
    androidx.compose
    to just
    compose
    in light of #compose-desktop, #compose-web, etc and move to beta stage happening soon? Put another way, if it was originated by Microsoft, or Apple, you can ask yourself if you would want to see it from the
    windowsx.compose
    or
    macosx.compose
    package, plus also see it in the imports in all the files where use it, even if for an Android or Linux app.

    In a code review seeing
    androidx
    packages in common code is weird and has no sense to keep that package name. I don't care if they want to replace
    androidx
    with
    google
    to keep their brand, but just a name which doesn't include a specific Multiplatform target when it is an agnostic framework.

    If the official website with great docs is already AndroidX branded, people will give the credit to the AndroidX/Jetpack team and Google. That is already the case! There's no need to confuse people and shovel the brand down their codebase even when it no longer make sense for the use cases.

    Considering all the breaking changes I've had to go through with the recent releases 😩, a package name change would be very welcome (especially before it's too late).

    Someone on the compose team (I think it was Leland?) said somewhere that they argued for this internally early in the compose project, but they were overruled and so it’s pretty much a done deal at this point. I can’t find it now.
    Maybe we should start a Change.org😅

    @louiscad I was joking – if Leland couldn’t convince his boss, I would be very surprised if we would be able to, especially this late in the game 🙈

    @Zach Klippenstein (he/him) [MOD] Sorry I took your non explicit joke seriously 😅 Do you want to be surprised?
    Just made a petition to have Jetpack Compose package name change before beta release, to avoid confusion for multiplatform usage and
    androidx
    . Please sign if you agree!https://www.change.org/p/google-drop-androidx-from-jetpack-compose-package-name-for-multiplatform-before-1-0-release

    At least replacing androidx.* with jetpack.* would be platform neutral naming

    This feels like Android all over again. Pun intended

    100k signatures to this petition and this can go right to the French National Assembly to be debated 😆

    We probably can do a more productive debate without politicians in the Kotin community though 😄

    sometimes backend developers already associate Kotlin to Androoid, it would be important for Compose to avoid this

    Can Google say something about this?
