I would consider it a package rename, nail -> mailx, thus the nail changelog should be preserved.

Would it have been more appropriate to just have nail obsolete mailx?


What is the actual upstream name?

...because the actual upstream name is "mailx". (It was "nail" initially, then it was renamed, since the original mailx-8.x development is stopped long time ago...)

Hence new "mailx-12.3" upgrades the previous one "mailx-8.x" and obsoletes "nail" (providing /usr/bin/nail symlink for backward compatibility).
