At the same time, I'll set up the appropriate Conflicts/Replaces in libemail-mime-perl, since it now provides those modules. There are a few rdepends for these packages, so I think I should just add them to Provides in libemail-mime-perl as well:Please note that at least libjifty-perl libcatalyst-modules-perl libhttp-request-params-perl bugzilla3 have versioned dependencies on either libemail-mime-creator-perl or libemail-mime-modifier-perl, and those won't be satisfied by the Provides: entries. (See policy 7.5) Changing the dependencies to something like libemail-mime-perl (>= xxx) | libemail-mime-creator-perl (>= yyy) should be enough, but this needs to be done before the removal happens to avoid uninstallability problems. Another concern I had was about an upgrade path for installations with libemail-mime-creator-perl or libemail-mime-modifier-perl but no libemail-mime-perl - those could have been left with the obsolete module versions. However, that doesn't seem to be a problem because they depend on libemail-mime-perl in both lenny and sid.
Why make fallback to libemail-mime-creator-perl (>= yyy) versioned? I see no need for that. - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
