I am currently maintaining the masqmail package in aur. masqmail is a 
small mail transfer agent. Last week a new version 0.3.0 was released 
which has no compatibility to the 0.2 branch.
The masqmail developer recommends users who already use masqmail to 
stick with the 0.2 branch and new users to take the 0.3 branch. To make 
that possible there needs to be a package for each branch in the aur.
I'm not sure how I should handle that. I was thinking about creating a 
second package "masqmail-0.3" in addition to the currently existing 
package "masqmail". I wasn't able to find anything about such issues in 
the packaging guidelines. Are there any suggestions how this should be
