[aur-general] need advice on package naming

I packaged python-libgit2 but the upstream is dead. And a new Python
binding was started by the same team than libgit2 itself. It's named pygit2.
So I wonder whether I keep the same package but point to the new
repository (and thus follow the Python naming convention) or I keep the
upstream name for people to find it (and follow packages like pygobject).
Is it more important to prefix Python packages with "python-" or to
respect the upstream name.
In the former, I'll write down "pygit2" in the package description. In
the latter, I'll ask for my old package to be deleted.
Thanks for your advice.
