Can this please be renamed to apache-pulsar? Since it was recently introduced I think priority should go to the editor for the name pulsar. There is already a pulsar-bin package introduced last year that has 10× the package votes as this, so already this package is kind of namespace squatting. I realize both projects use the same name, but given the other one was already established with this base name ... even if a source build has taken longer to work up because of Electron issues the -bin suffix still uses this same base name.

Likewise this package may need the -bin suffix too. I'm a little unclear from reading the package source what is getting built vs. downloaded. Is this built from sources or are there upstream binaries in that bundle? If the latter the rename should be to apache-pulsar-bin.
