I'm no expert in this, but here are my two cents.

If Kup is still a kcm module, I guess you can go on with kcm-kup, even if there is no kcm package (or is there? Maybe with a different name?) If it was a kcm module but it's not anymore, I would suggest kup-backup. It contains the original project name with a hint at what it actually is.

I would like to package Kup [1] for inclusion in Fedora, but I'm a bit confused about naming the package.

In Fedora repositories there's already a completely unrelated "kup" package [2], so I cannot name this new package with it's official name.

Since Kup is born as a KCM module, I think I can name it "kcm-kup" [3]... but there's really no package in Fedora named "kcm". In fact, looking through the package list I can find six kcm modules, but they are following different name schemas: the oldest three are using the "-" separator (kcm-fcitx, kcm-gtk, kcm-qt-graphicssystem), while the newest three use the "_" (kcm_systemd, kcm_touchpad, kcm_wacomtablet) which is a violation of naming guidelines [4].

Suggestions are welcome. Thanks
