modprobed{-,_}db confusion

For some reason modprobed-db on my Arch boxes was named modprobed_db. Following the naming used on the wiki prevented it from functionning:

$ pacman -Qs modprobed
local/modprobed_db 2.21-2
    Keeps track of EVERY kernel module that has ever been probed. \ Useful for those of us who make localmodconfig :)
$ man modprobed_db
modprobed_db(8)                                                                                         modprobed_db(8)
NAME
       Modprobed_db - Store and recall every module probed on the system at will
...
$ modprobed_db store &> /dev/null
$ ls ~/.config
-rw-r--r--  1 kozaki  896 12 Dec 2014 modprobed-db.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 kozaki  126 22 avril 22:13 modprobed_db.conf  «- newly created and empty conf

Same for my crontab, and so on.

Went to the AUR and Graysky's Github repo and got it. Sorry for the changes. I'll add a notice to avoid further confusion

That's a 2.5 years old issue, the project has been renamed: [1], [2] -- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:54, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
Sherman, set the Wayback Machine for 2013... @Kozaki, that version is nearly 3 years old as Lahwaacz points out. Please update to the current version. I do retain a symlink in /usr/bin to modprobed_db -> modprobed-db to allow for really old PKGBUILD files and scripts/crontabs etc. to still function; old config files should get moved over for you to ~/.config/modprobed-db.conf.

I just pushed v2.34 which actually do not provide that outdated symlink. It's been long enough. Graysky (talk) 17:02, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
I opened this talk about this wiki page, not about Graysky's handy utility itself:
> Sorry for the changes.
It's 2.5 years old... for those who manually replaced the package when its name changed, ie not all users. Especialy when the wiki kept silent at that time (Lahwaacz' first link above). As said the version on my Arch boxes was named modprobed_db and therefore would never show up when updating (it's not like I never updated these boxes for 2.5 years believe me). Therefore the couple of lines added to this page in order to let people know they must upgrade. Even if for a few my boxes are were proof it may well happen. kozaki (talk) 15:59, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
And how long would you propose that we keep the notice until we are absolutely sure that there is nobody using the old package? A hundred years? As Graysky says, it's been long enough.
As a sidenote, you might want to subscribe to notifications of the modprobed-dbAUR package to receive Graysky's kindly changelog on every new version.
