Ok, just give me a heads-up and I'll do the merge.

@Svenstaro OK, I'll upload the current fd packge as fdclone tomorrow.

Thanks for coming back to this. Well, there has been a complaint about the improper naming of the current "fd-rs" which, I suppose, is more popular than this package. So if we go by supposed popularity only, I think it's better to rename this package.

If you agree, could you just re-upload this package as fdclone? I will then merge this one into the new one so we retain all the votes and comments.

No problem for me to rename this package from fd to fdclone, but this package has been stayed with this name for 5 years. It's difficult for me to decide because I can't guess what the real user of this package feels about.

The user last logged in more than a month ago. I'll try to get their attention using an OOD flag even though that's improper but it's better than deleting this package.

@Svenstaro @dseg Seconded. AFAIK fd-rs is the only official Arch Linux package with the Rust suffix. Would be nice not to introduce a naming precedent like that only because Rust is a relatively new systems language.

Hey, any chance we can rename this to "fdclone" so that the name "fd" frees up for the much more popular fd-rs (
