I think, you should add a CVS-Admin request to create a new module with
the new package name
and start the retired package procedure described on

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/PackageEndOfLife

for the module with the old name. In the dead.package file you should
write, that the package
was renamed and where you can find the renamed package.
