These shouldn't be a problem, I think.

"root-project" instead of "root" could solve the problem.  It's not
just that the name is too generic, your users might assume that
root-tail and root-portal are part of your packages.

But you really need to get ftpmaster feedback.  This isn't something
that should be resolved by a popular vote.
