Everybody is asking that question, so it seems I can't explain it well
enough (I did my best in the previous e-mail).

Now assume you have
Package: foo (@ version 1)
Depends: bar
Recommends: qux

Package: foo (@ version 2)
Depends: bar
Recommends: qwa

Package: qwa
Conflicts: qux

And you are testing not foo, but baz (pin blo from unstable) which has
Test: test-baz
Depends: @, foo
Restrictions: needs-recommends

You tell me how to determine from which package I need to find my
Recommends and at which version. (Yes, you are missing information right
now to determine if this is possible at all or not).
