[aur-general] Package naming: <proglang>-<name> or <name>

I can't find anything in the AUR guidelines article about
recommended naming convention for packages.
Apart, from the brief paragraph here
I stumbled upon two packages that make me wonder about that:
installs straight from repo and, by convention, uses -git suffix
installs from Ruby gem
Am I right the latter should be named just jist
and jist-git for version of the package installing form git?
Or, is the ruby- prefix recommended here?
Or, the former should be actually named ruby-gist-git?
There is another one, same kind of tool but implemented in Python:
What, if any, is the naming policy in such cases?
I sense, it those packages should be named after software
https://github.com/defunkt/gist -> gist and gist-git
https://github.com/ConradIrwin/jist -> jist and jist-git
https://github.com/mattikus/pygist -> pygist and pygist-git
Their implementation language is displayed in dependencies.
