I have been developing the package RecurrenceAnalysis for some time. I used that name because the usual way of calling what it does looked too long for a package name (“Recurrence Quantification Analysis”), and acronyms like “RQA” are discouraged in the guidelines.
But now that I could release a version for Julia 1.0 I feel like updating its name, perhaps to the also commonly used “RecurrencePlot” (originally there was no plotting support, but now there will be).
I might just mirror the existing Github repository to another one with a new name, and submit the new one to be registered. But what should I do with the old package (already registered)? Is there a way to tag it as “defunct” or “superseded by”…?
Or should I do something different?
