Thanks again for the help and being receptive to feedback!

Maybe in some cases users need bazelisk specifically. Your suggestions are reasonable. Thanks. I have updated the package.

Thanks! :) It may also be worth updating the 'provides' section to include 'bazelisk'?

I have readded bazel as provides referring to official brew package. Thanks for your suggestions! @uhthomas

I feel like it would be better to install this tool as 'bazel', as is convention in the Bazel community.

Install it as the bazel binary in your PATH (e.g. copy it to /usr/local/bin/bazel). Never worry about upgrading Bazel to the latest version again.

This is also how the official 'setup-bazelisk' GitHub action works.

There has also been discussion of adding both for this package in the past.

Hi! Sorry for breaking changes without prior notice. The README of bazelisk just uses bazelisk instead of bazel. I think this package should only provide bazelisk instead of bazel.

Hi! The new version installs the binary as bazelisk rather than bazel, which is a bit inconvenient and unexpected. Is it possible to revert this behaviour change? I imagine this will also break existing users of the package, and dependencies which depend on 'bazel' as that is what this package is named in the 'provides' section.
