Summary of Package Overlaps
I generate the raw material for this list with an awk script that
parses the Contents and Packages files. The script ignores
directories, and ignores overlaps between packages that conflict with
each other. The awk script was posted to debian-devel once, and
can also be found as part of bug report #12308.
This version of the summary is based on
hamm/Contents-i386 from 1998-03-30/14:05 (GMT)
hamm/main/Packages from 1998-03-31/20:12 (GMT)
hamm/non-free/Packages from 1998-03-26/20:50 (GMT)
hamm/contrib/Packages from 1998-03-26/20:49 (GMT)
The non-us archive from 1998-05-02
Lots of changes since two months ago :-) We're down to 12 overlaps
now, 4 old ones and 8 new ones.

Moved old changelogs to end of summary, like WNPP does.
Overlap between xless_1.7-5 and scilab_2.2-4 (non-free):
scilab provides usr/lib/scilab/bin/xless. If this is not an xless
version, then this is a widget name collision. If it is, then it
should probably be made to use the xless package instead.
Reported as bug #9006 to scilab and #9008 to xless.
Overlap between cfs_1.3.3-1(nonus)(orphaned) and ssh_1.2.22-4(nonus):
Reported as #9689 and #12011 to cfs.
