I'd like to hear your opinion on the naming of the AUR packages  of the
QTScrobbler application .
The oldest package is "qtscrob" referring to the URL of the sourceforge
page and the source code archive name. Although the name of the
application stated on the homepage is "QTScrobbler".
When I wanted to install the application in March 2010, I searched for
"qtscrobbler" on AUR and obviously didn't find the package "qtscrob".
Therefore I packaged myself and submitted the packages "qtscrobbler" and
"qtscrobbler-cli". When I noticed the duplication I wrote a removal
request to the mailing list , which was forgotten after a short
discussion. (I submitted "qtscrob-cli" as a copy of "qtscrobbler-cli" for
conformance having the removal of qtscrobbler* in mind.)
The current situation is of course dissatisfying. I'd like to know whether
the application name should be preferred over the short name. I don't mind
about the maintainership of the packages.
