Why is the "libpango3.0-cil" package spelled "cil" and not "cli"?

Asked by GW on 2020-04-23

Why is the "libpango3.0-cil" package spelled "cil" and not "cli"?

Is this an historical accident of some kind?

Or is "cil" not a misspelling of "cli"?

I suggest you report a bug

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #2

There are 60 packages with "-cil" in their name on Ubuntu focal.
I doubt that this is a typo error.

From /usr/share/doc/cli-common/cli-policy.html/index.html (provided by the cli-common package):

2.1 CLI - Common Language Infrastructure
2.2 CLR - Common Language Runtime
2.3 CIL - Common Intermediate Language
2.4 ".NET" or long "Microsoft .NET Framework"
2.5 GAC - Global Assembly Cache

Maybe https://subscription.packtpub.com/book/application_development/9781782176725/2/ch02lvl1sec21/the-power-of-cil is an applicable reference

Can you help with this problem?
