[aur-general] Package naming where sources are not official

Hi all, I adopted https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/trayfreq/ a while
ago to nurture it back into health after seeing that it was trying to
use outdated files in /proc/ amongst other fatal bugs. The owners
haven't updated their sourceforge in a while (five years), so decided
to have a hack at rewriting it myself to work with modern
installations. That's enough background, it's mostly working now, but
the PKGBUILD is pointing to my source code.

Question: Should I have the aur package renamed to account for the
fact it's not using the 'true', 'official' sources even though those
haven't worked for years?

Cheers for your opinions.
