I understand, can you please make sure installation using old approach:

yum install pulp

would still work? We can switch to "pulp-server" in the future, but we
need some "transition window". We hard-require this in the katello.spec.
I guess this would be needed for that:

Provides: oldpackagename = $provEVR
Obsoletes: oldpackagename < $obsEVR
