Packaging software with the same name as another (now gone) package

I'm trying to package the git branch of the Python module aiohttp-socks which, as of version 0.5.5 (Arch's repos currently have 0.4.2), depends on python-socks, so that needs to be packaged as well.

Problem is, `python-socks` seems to be the name of a package that's no longer in the Arch repos (or got renamed) and is now provided and replaced by the python-pysocks package.

(Also, if I clone the AUR repo for python-socks, I get an old PKGBUILD for PySocks.)

How should I proceed?

Re: Packaging software with the same name as another (now gone) package

The name of the project and the module is python_socks, not just socks, so the correct name here would be python-python_socks.

If you read the maintainer name of that package and the name of the OP here I'd say it's safe to surmise they are the same person.

`python-python_socks` it is then. Thank you all.
