David, it does sound like you forked trayfreq .
If that's correct, you should give your project another name and then 
the aur package would ofcourse also need to change.

There may be an alternative however :
contact dzs6w3 &  starfall87 ,the people that created trayfreq, and team 
up with them ?

You can contact them through their sourceforge profile pages :
