Actually the source package name is just "bear", it merely produces
bear-devel, bear-engine and bear-factory. So the repository
already exists, and your
conflict is more than just an issue with confusion about bear-devel.

Fortunately there is nothing in the distribution which provides
/usr/bin/bear, so there wouldn't be a problem there.
I could see perhaps persuading the bear maintainer to rename their
entire package to "bear-engine" and have "bear-engine-devel" and
"bear-engine-factory". Its binaries are "bend-image",
(which itself seems conflict-prone), some things with a "bf-" prefix,
and "running-bear". But any conversation about renaming is one you
should have with the bear package maintainer.
