We've discussed this at the beginning in the "Naming scheme" thread.

Please call the jar io.jar as that is its name. It is unfortunate, but insofar
the name is not taken. I don't like this too, but deem it better to comply
with upstreams naming scheme if we can. You might want to ask about this on
pkg-java as this is, certainly, a common theme when placing jars without
namespaces in /usr/share/java

See above..

Repository should be names after the source package, therefore FOO-clojure.

You file ITPs for source packages, binary packages should have an appropriate
name, which would be libFOO-clojure for libraries.

The source package name.
