User story #6244
Automatic directive naming
Web - Config management
a very nice helper would be to be able to set a "naming scheme" or "naming template" with each technique.
When one instantiates it, it could pre-fill the name to a text like
"PKG_INSTALL <project> <purpose> <package>"
The user would still need to adjust it, but lose one interruption to the workflow.
("err. what was i gonna call it? how did we think we should name them? why am i even at work?")

Oh yes so much yes I want that !
A good idea would be to (pre)name differently Directives from unique technique:
- unique Techniques lead to directive with the same name as them
- non-uniuqe Techniques lead to a more specific directive name

OK, so the first quick win for that one is to use the technique name for every technique.
A more elaborated scheme would imply to actually set the text somewhere (most likelly in the metadata.xml, because it is here for just that kind of thing, but that mean modifying these file for the feature to be of any use, so a whole lot more code...)
