Vendor Name Duplications - How to handle them - Modbus vs non Modbus Plugins

Hello everyone,

I have a quick question:
How do you handle name duplications of vendor packages?
Especially modbus-plugins vs non modbus-plugins?

We are developing a “kostal” plugin, that supports the Kostal Pico MP Plus Smartmeter.

However since the plugin does not involve modbus, we started developmenet in the „normal“ nymea-plugins repo.

Following this approach, we experienced a problem with the debian packages, since there is an already existing vendor „kostal“ (modbusplugins) and our non modbus plugin „kostal“, one would overwrite the other.

Did someone tackle this problem in the past?

Thank you in advance.
