Inconsistent Version Naming

One minor problem that has bugged me throughout Lutris is the inconsistent version naming scheme for various games. A clear example would be the Steam Proton version, which has been listed as:

  • Steam (Proton) version
  • Proton version
  • Steam Play version

Are there any specific guidelines that should be followed, or should one be created? Should the runner name need to be included in the version name when it’s already been specified?

There had been some guidelines awhile ago, which clarified whats and hows of install script and game management, but I can’t find them anymore. Would be nice to have them back; there’s a number of things that should be documented to make the changes systematic.
And yes, you’re right; there should be a universal naming system so that all installer versions of the same kind are named similarly.
