The cmark and cmark-gfm packages have the following file conflicts:

The rest of the files in cmark-gfm are named to avoid name collisions with the cmark package,
e.g. the executable "cmark-gfm" vs "cmark", the library "" vs "", etc.,
so presumably it's meant to be possible to have both installed.
And cmark-gfm of course does not suffice as a replacement for cmark.

Additional info:

community/cmark 0.28.3-1
community/cmark-gfm 0.28.0.gfm.11-1

Steps to reproduce:

Attempt to install both community/cmark and community/cmark-gfm:
$ pacman -S cmark cmark-gfm
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/include/cmark.h exists in both 'cmark' and 'cmark-gfm'
/usr/include/cmark_export.h exists in both 'cmark' and 'cmark-gfm'
/usr/include/cmark_version.h exists in both 'cmark' and 'cmark-gfm'
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
This task depends upon

Please file an upstream bug, there is a reason they renamed the binaries in the upstream code, and they should install headers to a private subdirectory for the same reason (and instruct the pkg-config file to tell people to look there).

Oh, also there is something funky going on with their pkgconfig file, since the gfm version has libdir=/usr/usr/lib

0.28.3.gfm.15 got released and should fix the issue as far as I can tell.
