It's got the same name, is written by the same author, and the versions
begin at 2.0.0. Fwiw this is just a major version bump of the same
package - it doesn't really matter what percentage of it has changed
since the last version.
Yes, that means the package in [community] is out-of-date, and no, your
involvement with upstream doesn't matter.
