I'm looking for the best practice about publishing on crates.io a fork of an existing crate but which isn't actively patched.
What I did from now:
- Fork on GitHub
- Did a new branch and sent my work as a Pull Request
Now, I'm looking in case of the PR won't be merged in few days/weeks, how can I publish my fork?
Do I need to change the name or is it possible to keep the same name?
If I change the name in Cargo.toml, it's like doing a hard fork, and it's strange to don't have "username/crate's name" has an alternative to push on crates.io.
Do you have best practices or return of experience about this situation?
