Why is the package name etracer ?

The url is extremetuxracer :
Same with the source tarball :
And same with the directory inside that archive.

This situation is quite confusing imo, there could always be someone creating an AUR package with the real name.
Actually one was added one year ago and has 21 votes :

Maybe it was the same before with ppracer instead of planetpenguinracer, but this is not a reason.

Second less important comment :

Also the pkgver is different, 0.40 instead of 0.4. Are we sure there could be 0.xy versions again in the future?
The next one seem to be 0.5.
It might be worth asking upstream about it. If they do need 0.xy versions, we could even ask them to alway make 0.xy versions and never 0.x in order to avoid confusion.
This task depends upon

When I added it in community to replace ppracer, it was already in unsupported as etracer. I just kept the same name.
FTR, I removed extremetuxracer from AUR.

Allan brought it up recentely. I will rename it eventually but it is not very high on my todo list so it can take a couple of weeks.
