This is the same thing that Gunnar did for the
libspreadsheet-writeexcel-perl package just a few days ago.
He did? Did he already try an upload?
yes and it propagated to testing very quickly.
AFAICT, chaging the source name will make the scripts treat the package
as a new one, meaning that it will have to go through NEW, which takes
quite some time these days. Also, you will have to force
an .orig.tar.gz-upload even though it is not a -1 version. And all kinds
of other horrible stuff :-)
OTOH, there is no problem in having a differing source name, and for
library packages, this is not uncommon. I'd strongly recomment not
changing the source name, but I'm interested in what Gunnar has to say.
That I don't know, given my limited experience. I can certainly redo the
package with the old source tarball, however, as a point of reference,
even the old name is not the original name from CPAN (which includes
capitals and not the ".orig.tar.gz" construction).
Let's see what Gunnar says and then I will do whatever fixes are
