[Slackbuilds-users] Package name change: how to proceed

I maintain two packages one named obnc and the other obnc-libstd. The first is an Oberon compiler and basic library and the second is a library for it with extra functionality. The author of the compiler has decided to rename second from obnc-libstd to obnc-libext.

How should I proceed? Should I make a new SlackBuild named obnc-libext and request the removal of obnc-libstd?

Additionally, I wanted to ask which is the correct way to proceed when using the mirror of Slackbuilds on github (https://github.com/willysr/slackbuilds). Is the correct way fork that repository, make changes and then do a pull request? Is this better (easier) for the team maintaing Slackbuilds.org than submitting the tar.gz?
