Thanks, ok I'll add provides then...

Upstream packages are from different people:

https://metacpan.org/release/File-Rename --> Robin Barker

https://metacpan.org/release/PEDERST/rename-1.9 --> Peder Stray

@figue I am not familiar with these packages either. While installing this package (as a dependency of icecat), I faced an issue because it wanted to overwrite files owned by perl-rename (from the community repository). They seem to be the same program.

The version of perl-rename available in community seems too old for the requirements of icecat, so perl-file-rename is indeed necessary. I just added

provides=('perl-rename')

to the PKGBUILD, and that solved the issue for me.

I may have overlooked something; feel free to criticise my solution.

@sylphio why? Upstream name is File-Rename... I'm not used to perl packages. Just created this because I couldn't find to build IceCat.

Should this package not conflict (and provide) perl-rename?
