Hm, making git-core a dummy/transitional package, which pulls the "git" package on upgrades sounds like a better idea to me. Otherwise git won't be updated when going from lenny to squeeze. You can also change the rdeps more gradually, i.e. they won't break if you upload the new package to unstable now. For squeeze+1, when all rdeps have been updated, you can safely drop the transitional package. Just my 2¢, Michael -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
