RFC: Upstream author renamed his software
Dear fellow developpers,
I'm requesting your advice, since this situation is new for me:
I maintain the iiwusynth debian package, but yesterday, upstream author announced
the application has been renamed to FluidSynth.
What am I supposed to do about my package ?
Do I need to file an ITP ?
Should I just upload a version with the new name and ask ftp-masters to remove
the other package ?
How should I warn our users about the name change ?
Please CC me.
Thanks for your help.
