There is already a JIRA open to rename the module:

We can update it with more details.

> I just noticed that the main module for Hibernate OGM has slot="ogm",
> while the various dialect extension modules use the "main" slot.
> My understanding is that "main" should be reserved for the version
> included in a specific application server version, so we'd better
> avoid it to make it possible to eventually include OGM in WildFly and
> still be able to differentiate versions.
> The "ogm" slot also doesn't make it possible to use multiple versions,
> which is ok now that there's a single release but won't be
> sustainable.
> Could we use the same label for all modules in a specific release, and
> encode version in it too?
> I propose using "ogm-{Major.Minor.Micro}".

> with Hibernate Search and Infinispan; this seems to be working quite
> well so far.
> Such an alias deploys a module which defines for say "ogm-4.1" should
> look for "ogm-4.1.1": then applications can generally refer to
> "ogm-4.1" and let the alias resolve it, or be more explicit if they
> like so.
